No way. Just look at the Islanders. They were hit way worse than we were. Okposo (one of their top forwards), Streit (their #1 D-man), and DiPietro (their #1 goalie) missed most of the season.
You think we'd be having a solid season if Dubinsky, Staal, and Hank were out most of the year?
Yeah... DP is only #1 by title. Last time i heard him mentioned the announcers were joking about how he won a game without getting injured. Except that's the sad truth. It is actually an accomplishment for him to play 60 minutes without getting hurt.
