While your correct and your observations are well thought out (because I, and I don't think anyone else was thinking of this)..

Did you take into effect the players we acquired that will be on the team? While you can't pinpoint a player's PIM totals for the year, you can give an average ranged estimate...

Out:

Jagr - 58 PIM
Malik - 48 PIM
Strudwick - 40 PIM
Avery - 154 PIM
Hollweg - 96 PIM
Backman - 20 PIM
Tyutin - 43 PIM
Straka - 22 PIM
Shanahan (Probably) - 35 PIM

Total PIM OUT = 516

In:

Rissmiller (Probably not on team) - 30 PIM
Voros - 141 PIM
Zherdev - 34 PIM
Redden - 60 PIM
Naslund - 46 PIM
Kalinin - 32 PIM
Fritsche - 22 PIM

Total PIM IN = 365

Now, of course these players all played different amounts of games and played with a different team. To the obvious statistical lookup, the Rangers look as if they will take less penalties, which is a good thing, but at the same time we're losing some players who seem to draw penalties greatly in favor of us (e.g. Jagr, Avery, Straka).

Do I think we'll be a better disciplined team? Yes. I think any team without Sean Avery is capable of being a discipled team.
