Bad is too strong, but definitely mediocre. Strong down the middle with Sid and Geno, but beyond that, not much else. The defense is, for the most part, soft. Orpik and Scuderi are really the only two d-men who are physical, and big enough to move people. Letang can be physical, but he's too small. Gill is good at using his stick, but is slower than molasses. Boucher blows, and Eaton stinks. Goligoski is playing well as a rookie, but has a long way to go defensively.
Sid and Geno are...well, Sid and Geno, and right now, even Sid isn't playing well. The rest of the forwards (except for Cooke), are useless. Satan is washed up, Fedotenko has hands of stone, and the rest couldn't score on an open net. Staal has been invisible, and every time I see that Kessel has scored another goal, I curse Shero's name. How do you pass on a guy with a goal-scoring pedigree for someone who showed no offensive ability in juniors, and especially when there was (and still is) no one is the system who has shown that they can score goals? Staal was drafted based upon his size and name, and as I said before, other than the Detroit game where he dominated, he's been the second coming of Chris Wells.
In goal, MAF has been inconsistent, and Sabourin is a seive.
Put it all together, and this team is mediocre at best.
