I agree actually, in that Forsberg and Bert are new mostly unkown quantities that are roughly comparable in terms of talking injuries and impact on the team.

I happen to think that missing Sully and Hartnell have a much higher impact on our team than is apparent on its face. Still, we were in both games and ultimately outplayed both games. Fully healthy, either of these teams could win against the other in a 7 game series.

And a final thought: Bert's addition to the lineup may not make the Wings better, at least in the short run. I think it is difficult to insert a big new piece into the lineup (not just because of our Foppa experience) and have instant success. The Wings will need to work him in prior to the playoffs but I could see them struggling during a few games as they adjust.
