I'm not defending Trotz or the players, it's the results that count, but I'm seeing an improvement in the basics.
FWIW, we've had 70 PP opportunities and converted only 7. Pretty bad. But if we would have made 5 more we'd be at around 12-13 in the league around 17% and we probably wouldn't be having this conversation. It's not as far off as it would seem.
If we had only scored 5 more goals we would have most likely had won more games too, that's kind of why everyone is frustrated. We're not winning many games because we're one of the worst scoring teams in the NHL.
