Bellows and Joe Murphy were the two I can think of that helped in the past, but after that they have been pretty sad. James Black was able to get back into the NHL before he hurt himself. Indeed, he does like to dumpster dive.
Seriously though, worse case scenario they play good enough to finish 9th/10th in the East.
Again, I just can't see this happening. This team is as mentally soft as they come. Couple that with poor top six forward balance, thin D, poor overall depth and inexperienced goaltending and you get garbage.
Even with all of OTT's injuries I think the current top ten in the East is pretty representative. There's just two points separating 10th from 11/12 but I think WPG, NYI, FLA, BUF & WSH are clearly the dregs of the Eastern Conference. It's just a matter of how poorly their habits will sink them among that bottom group.
