- Who must step up to replace the offensive void left by the elbow injury to captain Mats Sundin? Much more can't be asked of Darcy Tucker, who already leads the team in goals with 10. Here are four others who must step up:

Kyle Wellwood

2 G, 10 A, 12 PTS

Moves from wing to centre, where he'll start between Alexei Ponikarovsky and Nik Antropov. "I welcome the challenge," he said.

Matt Stajan

4 G, 8 A, 12 PTS

Has anyone flown under the radar more than this guy?Putting together an excellent season on a line with Alexander Steen and Jeff O'Neill.

Michael Peca

1 G, 4 A, 5 PTS

May be the most valuable one-goal scorer in NHL. Having said that, he'll be looked upon to increase his offensive stats.

Jeff O'Neill

5 G, 6 A, 11 PTS

Seems to be getting his quick release back after playing with a wonky shoulder last season.
