Is anyone else worried that we might be a little TOO reliant on Rick Nash? Look at our record with and without him.
Now granted, Nash has stepped up and become a monster with Richards playing poorly, then not playing at all, and Gaborik has been slumping, but still making some impact, but without Nash, how many of these games do we win?
Our scoring is still too top heavy. If Callahan, Nash or Stepan are off, that could be the game. We need to be getting at least a goal or two from our bottom six every few games. SOME secondary scoring.
Pyatt scored a few early, then slowed down scarily, Miller has only scored in a single game, Kreider and Asham each had one goal while here, and after that, it's a ton of zeros.
Halpern, Boyle, Powe, Bickle. Not a goal between 'em. Boyle and Halpern have one assist each.
I know you look to your top six to score, but we've seen what happens if a few players are off. We're winning games, but we still don't look like team that can gut it out if it has to.
We need a 3rd line. Not 2 4ths
