I don't think the org thinks like you. I think the org plans on being competitive next year. And I agree with them.

Salary and roster space. Need to move some coin to the forwards. And you don't want to land Spacek or Gill in the pressbox either.

You're always suggesting to trade established NHLers for picks and prospects. It's your very own personal warhorse.

His ES points have not. He's been 40 like clockwork for 3 straight years before this year. And Corsi measures even strength.

And this is the part that's not getting in your head. The pucks HAVE been going in before; the Habs just haven't been generating the chances. They were bad. This year, they've had the chances, the pucks haven't gone in.

It is a huge difference. And you've completely refused to acknowledge it as meaningful.

Corsi is a measure of all shot attempts, so they already include both GF and GA. It's a very simple calculation that is a measure for puck possession.
