1) Obviously the lack of offense.
Brevity restricts for now to I agree.

2) Obviously the injuries.

3) There just seems to be a lack of urgency, especially with the younger, unestablished players.
Mostly disagree. There is some lax mostly across the board, but the youngsters are trying not to foul up, or get in trouble, which is the CONTINUED STUPIDITY OF TORTS!

What exactly does Mashinter bring to this team? He's not a good enough skater to forechecking and too slow to take the body. And somebody, either Mashinter or Bickel, has to get into a fight after Biron is run and if they felt the Pacciorety hit was dirty). And I'm not a big fight guy but show some pride.
Mashinter didn't cost and you get what you pay for.
Bickel could be the 4th line LW for the moment.

Miller and Kreider seem too comfortable in their places in the lineup.
Disagree. They are trying, but are tentative about screw up and rant from Torts, who again has to go.

The one guy who seems to be really trying to keep his spot and compete is Gilroy (and I can't believe I'm saying that).
Agree he's trying and earning his keep.
