Considering the phrasing of the question along with reasons (external or internal) pertaining to the players' inability to meet the standards or exceed the standards and how that's going to change: Hagelin, Pyatt.
I have high expectations for Del Zotto and even Richards heading into the season so they don't have to exceed expectations, by all means.
But okay, I will step off the elevated horse and answer the question.... Nash. We need Nash to do what he was meant to do. Our bottom 6 (even considering AV's top 9 philosophy) is apparently getting a lot of help this off-season but our offensive guys need to step up. Nash needs to be Nash and make everyone around him better. He can definitely allow time and space for other players when he's charging ahead offensively and he needs to do that in order for top guys to have success. Nash needs to be a 90 point player and play like it in the PO for us to go anywhere.
But Nash ISN'T a 90 point player... that's the thing. The obvious (and correct) answer IS Brad Richards. He needs to put up at least 60 points and this team will be in good shape. It would be nice to see Hags take a step forward offensively as well.
Step, Brass just need to keep at the level they were playing last season... which is obviously easier said than done.
