However their lesser offensively skilled teammates are really good hockey players, NHL caliber talents just like Lundmark and Balej. I would have been more worried if they were outplayed by John Tripp, Dixon Ward and Chris Armstrong instead of Murray, Ortmayer, Gernander, Hollweg and Helminen.
I like what McGill is dooing in Hartford, the packs are 7-1-0-1 in there last 9 games. Thats something you wouldn´t belive if you scrolled through McGills comments in the paper the past two weeks. He is putting allot of pressure on the top players down there to perform all over the ice within his system, not just scoring. I wouldn´t look into the stats Lundmark and Balej have too much.
Put Balej on a lesser skilled team where he is the go to guy and he would score allot more.
