You realize MOST of the players you listed, are either coming off of injuries, or are only supposed to be depth players right?

Only Heatley played a complete season of the only couple top six forward talent... PMB hadn't played a game in over a year.

Prosser, Falk and Stoner have never shown any ability to be more than 3rd pairing defensemen.

Cullen never belonged in the top six. Thus you have Seto starting slow with a rookie centerman and an ill placed winger, and now Koivu with a rookie and Parise. You can't tell me our top two lines were going to be perfect out of the gate. The 3rd line has been the only one filled with only returning players, but those players are being asked to play a different role than previous due to the increased talent ahead of them in the lineup.
