If everyone stayed healthy and we just sucked sure but things really went bad early too I'm in line with SD here. The injuries are something a team/org with our lack of depth simply cannot handle, especially at key positions. Losing 1 G was bad, but losing both for extended periods of time causing you to rely upon young rookies who are clearly not ready and a cast off journeyman who never had any NHL success to speak of is something most teams would struggle with. Add into that having Jack and Hamilton (our 2 most important skaters) out for 2+ months, and it's not shocking we are where we are right now. What is disappointing is the lack of production from guys like Tatar and Zacha, and the clear regression of Smith. What's worse is the fact that this team is softer than Charmin and way too easy to play against. That has to change, regardless of who is in the lineup.
