Injuries suck, but 82 games (like 162 games) means you have time to turn things around when players get healthy.
Didn't like the Risto trade, loved the Ellis trade, Voracek for Atkinson was about both team chemistry and fit, Atkinson doesn't need the puck and can play on any line, plus he's good on the PK.
One year signings like Yandle are about buying time for kids to grow up (York, Zamula, Hogberg, Foerster, Ratcliffe, Wisdom) and a bridge to college kids (Brink, JOB, Attard, St Ivany).
Real problem is Hart, 1st game was a disappointment but he did bounce back after a terrible 2nd period. Your goalie has to steal some games for you when you're struggling with injuries.
Frost should be up by 11/2 when they get back from their 3 game West Coast swing.
Hayes by around 11/16, 13 games and 8 weeks, don't want to rush him.
Allison by January.
Thompson is a body, but he's better than Bunnaman and Rubtsov right now, which isn't saying much.
Willman is a late bloomer who's career was sidelined by an ACL, keep an eye on him.
Seeler is your basic AAA+ guy who fills in for a game or two but has no future.
Brassard is your bullpen guy forced to start, he's was originally slotted for 4LW.
Laughton is your setup guy forced to close, he's better at 3LW and 4C than 3C.
That's what injuries do to you, as every Phillies fan knows all too well!
