Interchangeable pieces is a good thing. Interchangeable pieces with extra pieces means none of them fit quite right.
Now, granted, this isn't so much Lou's fault as it is a consequence of Tallinder's injury last year, which is why we have the extra pieces. It's Lou's fault insofar as he chose not to deal with it last summer. But, on the other hand, it does mean the team has good injury depth, which is why we never tried to fix it I suspect.
That's getting back into guessing at what the psyche of the players are, which we have no real way of knowing.
The defense should have played great when Tallinder was hurt, if this was the case, but I think the defense has looked pretty much the same all season.
