What if Pittsburgh loses Letang, Crosby, Malkin, Iginla and Fleury?

Looks pretty bad, no?

What if a bomb hits the Boston Garden.. and kills the Bruins? Should Chiarelli have traded for an entirely new 23 man roster?

Injuries will happen.. but you can't acquire an infinite amount of depth, it's ludicrous. We have plenty of depth to plug in if injuries happen. Nothing we can get at a deadline (barring astronomically stupid prices.. Pominville???) will replace losing our best players to injuries.

The Bruins thing wouldnt be that bad of a thing no ? Maybe just injure them. I'm not that sick of a human being.

No but seriously, I am not talking about Pominville or any other big fish. There's plenty of good depth 3rd liners that can fill in the 2nd line that could have been added for a relatively cheap price.
Just look at players like Halpern... Down the line, it's our AHL depth that I don't like. Instead of giving roster spots to players who will never make the team(even on short stints.) Why can't we just sign better players... (Tenute, Hagel, Stortini ETC come to mind)

Look at Binghampton. They have a crap load of players that can fill in every spot in the roster. They have one goalie who can start (Well not anymore, he's NHL bound), they have Gryba, Benoit, Weircoch to fill in Defense... Stone, Prince, Dziurzinki, Da Costa Etc...

While our better call-ups are first year rookies or Mike Freaking Blunden. (Geoffrion injury doesnt help here, but still.)

I think MB really underestimated his team this year, and he never really tought he would be in this spot. (Which is normal.) He had a plan, he refused to adjust and we might pay in the playoffs. But every thing will be better next year for sure.
