The talent is essentially the same as it has been, so why are we 5 wins worse?
I think the argument can be made that Torts
hasn't been bad
for us, but...he's been good for us? Can't understand that at all.
Five wins isn't a huge number so I think it can be explained by a few causes. First, last year we had a reliable backup goalie, this year not so much. Chris Drury has nothing offensively left in the tank, last year he was still a 50 pt guy. Avery has slacked off, although Torts benching him just restarted him which is good to see. Our D is incredibly young, much younger than last so you'd expect some growing pains.
I acknowledge there is a debate here, I only said what I said before in response to a specific post.
