Brad Richards with $12,000,000 in salary (#5th NHL 2013) has 15 GP - 2 goals - 9 assists - 11 points but is only #88th in NHL points and a +2 with 0 PP goals 63:40 played on PP
Marian Gaborik with $7,500,000 in salary (#19th NHL 2013) has 15 GP - 7 goals - 4 assists - 11 points but is only #77th in NHL points and a +1 with 0 PP goals in 52:21 played on PP

These 3 players - all paid to be superstars - are not putting up the points to warrant this
The Team Captain has also had a very slow start offensively
Ryan Callahan is making $4.000.000 this year
He is in 299th place!! in total scoring in the NHL with 12 GP - 3 goals - 1 assist - 4 points and is a -4.
But he has actually scored 2 PP goals in 43:59 PP time.

The rest of the top 9 - Hagelin, Stepan, Miller/Kreider, Pyatt, and Boyle - are not paid to lead the way offensively
They are young and/or regarded as secondary pieces
Hence - together these 6 players have $0,875m, $0,875m, ~$2,600m (combined), $1,550m and $1,700m in salary this year.
That is ~ $6,250m combined - or around one fifth of what the Top 4 guys are getting in total salary.
But their point production is 26 points vs 38 points for the top 4.

So I say - Excuses are like rectums - everybody has one...
There you have the main reason for our bad results
Simple as that - statistically at least
Time to turn this ship around

Nash, Richards and Gaborik all need to step it up. Nash needs to start scoring more, I couldnt give a flying **** what else hes doing. 7.8 is for the goals. Richards needs to get his head out of his ass, quit making bonehead passes and Gaborik needs to be more consistent.
