It comes down to scoring. Their defense has been good, Lundqvist isn't the problem, it's just their offense has completely vanished.
The big three is falling short, big time. Doesn't help that Gaborik is playing on the 4th line.
I agree, they sacrificed a lot of depth for Nash...the current Rags remind of the Lightning of a few years ago. One really good line that Tortorella played 26 minutes a night, and not a whole lot after that.
