If anything, it's the defense that is particulary affected, missing 2/3 best D-men, specifically the best in the world

Forward group is affected too but only Spezza is missing... However huge impact as his presence automatically makes everyone better (attracts the "game plan" on him)

Best we could come up with when Regin and Latendresse are back

Zibanejad - Turris - Alfredsson
Michalek - Da Costa - Silfverberg
Latendresse - Regin - Neil
Smith - O'Brien - Condra
Greening, Daugavins

Methot - Gonchar
Lundin - Wiercioch
Phillips - Benoit
Borowiecki, Gryba

Anderson
Bishop


Depht is there, we're just missing our Elite talent. Looks like a rebuilding team without Spezza, Karlsson and Cowen, which is what we were but we had several impact players that made us forget about that quickly
