Nothing against these guys at all.
But our top 6 wasn't addressed and no one should be surprised we continue to struggle offensively.
Stalberg saw 3rd line minutes on a currently elite team ... not simply a contender ... supporting my earlier post. Same for Cullen.

Our ES defense needs addressing ... did last season ... did the season before that as well. But it is so much easier to gripe about the lack of sexy scoring while overlooking that our ES defense hasn't topped 13th in the league since 2010-11.
