The team has underachieved so far, so most players or the key players have under performed. It can't be any other way, which is why I think the analysis is the following:
Above average: DMO, Chip, Biz, Barbs
Below average: Smith, Sullivan, Vermette
Hanzel great but injured, Doan great lately but average overall, Verby injured, OEL we expected to be this good, Bods we expected to be this good.
The bottom line is two 4th line players, the back up goalie and one veteran D that lost 15 pounds are our over achievers from expectations. Outside of DMO, not many minutes here.
The problem is two top 6 forwards under performance along with Smith. Smith would be considered in the bottom third of the NHL for starters this year. Tons of minutes here.
If Smith plays great we make the playoffs, if he does not, we won't, simple as that....
