Our offense is mediocre. As evidenced by where it ranks in the league.

Doesn't change the fact that Setoguchi, playing over 50% of his shifts with Joe Thornton, managed a measly 41 pts. He'd have managed even less with the linemates he'd get on this team.

Adding another mediocre offensive player at the cost of an elite offensive defenseman is ass backwards.
