I think a few of the bottom 6 problems are looking like they'll sort themselves out. I'm not saying they'll all be solved, but a few of them looking forward to the rest of this season and perhaps the rest in the offseason.

Injuries happen, but EDM lost arguably their best bottom 6 player in Horcoff. I think Smyth is a bit unfairly maligned to be lumped in with Eager and Petrell - he's a better player than that and is IMO just fine in a 4th line role

Maybe I'm just an optimist, but I don't see the same problem for next year with a bottom six of:

Paajarvi-Horcoff-???
Smyth-???-Hartikainen

Belanger and Brown presumably the 13th and 14th F's.

Where the ??? are filled via UFA.
