It sucks with your loss of Spezza and Karlsson but we are without important players too.
Oh please its not even close. Ottawa is going to be missing

Spezza, 4th in scoring in the NHL last season
Karlsson, Norris winner of last season, plays 28 minutes a night in all situations
Michalek, 35 goal scorer last season
Cowen, top 4 d-man a rookie last season

So arguably the best defenceman in the league, a great #1 center, a good first line LWer, top 4 dman and a couple of solid depth players are all out and somehow Lupul, Reimer, and Frattin compare?
