The Rangers scored 3 or more non shootout goals in 8 of their first 16 games playing a more up tempo style.
So 50% of the time they were scoring 3 or more in a more aggressive system.

Then they took a few bad losses and Renney reverted into a shell because he had no balls. Since then they've only scored 3 or more goals 17 times over the last 45 games.

Thats a percentage of 37%...

Quite a difference.

16 games is a pretty good sampling in my mind, so i think with the right attitude, decisiveness and positioning, the forwards do have enough talent to be at least half way in the league in GPGA, you cant tell me that with this lineup they should be dead last in that category... . And thats not even considering if Torts brings a better powerplay to the table. The Rangers have sucked all year at that.

Sure, it might be at the expense of some defensive play but at least Henrik is back there waiting.

Worth a shot, glad they took it.
