The goalies will not be able to bail us out every game.
The Reason Tanguay didn't get an A+ is due to the fact that most of the goals he scored were just PERFECTLY set up by Koivu. He had an open net to shoot the puck. I'll give him credit his positioning is very good and he is a solid player, but does that Warrant an A+?
Sorry I won't be justifying the D on Dandenault, as I wrote "He knows how to skate..." .
We were often outshot last year too....
Its all about the number of scoring chances not the number of shots....
The habs have guys like markov and kovalev who love to set up the perfect chance... our defensive strategy allows a lot of perimeter shots with no traffic...
You can't just look at the stats.
