Scoring depth has been an issue, but I think the blueline is a bigger issue. Outside of the big 3, it just isn't great at all. Lauzon has a tonnoe of potential, but I am not sure I would be playing him top 4 minutes (noting he has looked good), a more sheltered role in the 3rd pairing would have made more sense.
Zorbil has that same potential, but..... same rule apply. Moore is a bottom.pairing guy. So is Clifton.
In short, the inability to replace Krug has had a major impact imo. Really do need a legit top 4 guy to bridge a gap.</div></div>
I knew that this season was going to be "risky" for lack of a better word. Putting Lauzon on the top pair was a stretch IMO but they really didn't have any other options, and he proved to a solid top 4 dman. Secondary scoring has always been an issue, and just look, in the Bruce Cassidy era, the best playoff run they had, Coyle, Johansson, Kuraly, and Krejci were all providing big goals. Eveyr other year, the top line is the only line going. They need a big change this offseason and bring in an impact forward this offseason. I was really hoping to bring in Josh Anderson, as although he might not score every night, his size and speed drive play, something Derbusk SHOULD be doing, but isn't.
