The excuses will never end with this team. Injuries, new coach and system every second year...yada yada yada. We have more skilled guys than we can fit on the top two lines so we should be able to over come the Hall injury.
exactly.... it sucks losing hall for a month or more, no doubt... but we are actually in a decent position to fill his gap.... we have good skill depth on the wings (yakupov, eberle, hemsky, perron) that should be able to make up some skill difference... losing another center would have been much more devastating

it is interesting in the year we finally have enough dmen to withstand all the normal injuries you have to dmen in a year, we don't really have any d-injuries, lol
