Goalies have played worse too this year. Things can't have this much of a turnaround without multiple factors involved. There was no one player that the Pens lost that was "that" critical to explain the huge difference.

System became much more passive
Goalies have a lower 4v5 SV% as a team (Vokoun's is only 75%) MAF only 90%
Lost best forward in Staal
Sutter not winning enough faceoffs
Orpik has been worse
Letang has also been worse
Cooke has seen a huge regression
Glass is a pretty poor all around player and awful at faceoffs.

Take your pick at what is causing it. It's everything above.
