I don't know. I went line by line through the play by play for several games before the break, and the amount of minutes they were not up against the top lines was eye opening. Yes, they shut down good lines... But then do nothing to score even when matched up against weaker lines. If they would pop in some goals when they get favorable matchups it would really help. Smithson hurts them on the offense. I'd even be happy if they tried Boyd there. Supposedly he is responsible defensively but with some offense as well.
