I agree but I'm a lot more concerned about the blue line then the forwards.
This team is 1 injury away from having to dress Andrew Alberts a guy who has been almost unplayable in the post season. Worse yet it's 2 injuries away from having to play Cam Barker who has been unplayable period.
There is no Chris Tanev down on the farm this year, and that could end up being a major problem in the not so distant future.
Goes to show how important it is to have young defenseman developing on your farm team, when you have a guy that can actually play a limited role in the NHL it does wonders for your over all depth. Luckily Frank Corrado will be in the pro's next year and he is really looking like a guy who could help down the stretch next year.
As for Ebbett, I think he clears anyway.
