Based on what I saw of them during the lockout the two main problems was a lack of skill and a lack of veterans. They were outskilled most nights with Sgarbossa, Agozzino, Barrie and Elliott and possibly Lerg being the only skill players.

Also, most AHL teams that succeed tend to have a bunch of AHL veterans. LEM don't really have a lot of those and those they have can't really carry the team, being more utility players.

I'm sure carrying two rookie goalies also isn't ideal, but I don't think that has been a major problem.
