Anyone that thinks forsberg is going to light it up will be sadly mistaken. He doesn't have the talent around him to make plays, and he is only 19, I mean if we had of got barkov nobody expected him to contribute right away, and he is way better size and talent wise than forsberg.

I hate to say it, but we are going to struggle to score goals big time this season.

Having possibly best defense and goaltending in the league is great, but the other guys will score eventually, and if we can score, we don't win. Simple.

We need more balance like Chicago (who just won cup), they have elite forwards and defense as well.
Some of your >>>>>> are a bit exaggerated.

Stalberg had 4 more goals than Erat, one less point, definitely not a significant step down.

Nystrom had 2 less goals than Spaling, two less points, again, not a significant step down.

Hendricks had the same number of goals, three less points, than Halischuk, again, not a significant step down.

Cullen to Kostitsyn, though, is a 12 point difference, and is a solid upgrade.
