    Mueller was hurt for a good stretch. Our left side lacks top end talent, but we have 4 guys I'm fairly confident in running out there every night.

    Mojo for most of the year. Zajac at the start. Boyle at the start. Palms missed a good chunk. Gibbons missed games.

    To a lesser extent Hall and Zacha missed games. Q when he was up.

    Maybe it was not terrible, but we've had our share.

    I think we have very solid fwd depth.

    Hischier didn't miss a game, Bratt missed one game, Hall missed 5, and the Devils found themselves with better than expected forward depth with the emergence of Coleman and Gibbons. Guys called up from Binghamton played a total of 11 games this season, a total which I assume is close to the lowest in Devils history (I think 2007 was similarly healthy). That will not happen next season, you can bet on that.

    Crosby played 82, Kessel 82, Malkin 78 letang 79.

    Kucherov played 80, stamkos 78, Johnson 81 Hedman 77.

    Giroux, Vroacek Couturier provorov all played 82.

    We did not have an out of the ordinary healthy season.

    And yes we did have good fwd depth, in part because of Coleman and Gibbons(but do note we traded away Rico) but that was my point. We have good depth.

    How many games did we have where everyone was healthy? 2? 3?

    Anyway, CHIP (Cap Hit of Injured Players) charts:
    NHL Injury Viz: 2017/18 team injury breakdowns

    We seem to be pretty middle of the pack (ignore the light blue - it's LTIR i.e. Clowe).

    Tampa, Pitt, and Philly all were pretty low on the chart.

    If you break it down further, in terms of defense, we were very healthy. Only Mirco missed games, and his cap hip was nill.

    But in terms of fwd's we are amongst the top 1/3 both in terms of cap hit and total games missed. We had to battle through a fair amount of injuries.

    That might have actually worked in our favor. We probably had better depth at F than D, although losing Zajac, Johansson, and Palms for long stretches was pretty bad.

    With Mueller and Santini, and after the addition of Vat's, we do go 4 deep on both sides of the back end. But it was not really put to the test.
