Hecht playing center? That's something we might not have seen with a healthy Roy. And while he's been solid over that time, it's reasonable to think his game would have improved (more like reverted to the mean) playing at center or on the wing.
Jame is taking what seems like an accidental correlation (Roy's injury, Buffalo's improved play) and trying to ascribe some kind of direct causal relationship.
Call me when we make the playoffs and actutally win a round without Roy.
Until then, it's all fun philosophical speculation, a fine way to kill some time.
call me when we do it WITH Roy.
I see a direct relationship.
I see the puck on our goalscorers sticks MUCH more
I see our Ozone possession time increasing dramatically
I see our turnovers cut down
I see our PP with more zone time and quicker cycles
I see all off this not only as a result of better effort, coaching, etc... but as a direct result of the absence of a player who had previously impacted ALL of the above areas NEGATIVELY.
