Spezzas the only one who wins a majority of his faceoffs, including on pp. I'd like Turris to become a great 2nd line C but he hasn't proven it yet.
About a third of their points came on pp, 28 for EK and 24 for Spez. Next closest were Michalek 15 and Alfie/Gonchar 14 ppp. Power play will suck if one of the guys is out.
Karlsson needs someone to get FOW and pass him the puck.
Spezza needs someone to give outlet passes, and set up from the point.
The replacement options are not great.
