The defense is expected to score too, but we don't try to outscore teams 6-4, we win games when we hold teams under 3 goals per game...
Didn't notice your post at first but I don't even think Atlanta had a 40 goal scorer after Kovalchuk was traded away. They have some promising talent but even now former coach Craig Ramsay was on the record saying they needed a another goal scorer. Also having a guy who can light up the lamp 40+ times a season can be a good way to market your team(us Thrasher fans know how terrible they were marketed).
