The big problem IMO last year was that there were some games where we ran up the score BUT there were other games where we never got a sniff at the net for 20-30 mins at a time.
The D and Lundquist kept us close but there was simply no offensive chances. This is where I hope Richards will make a huge difference. Just a small spark of offensive creativity, one that can feed Gaborik in a decent scoring opportunity could turn many of those lifeless losses. And if other teams fear the Richards-Gaborik line, this should free the Pack line up a bit by going against a weaker D pairing and allow them to take advantage of their north-south game.
I think we will be better than last year, but how much better depends on whether the Gaborik-Richards line can create opportunities when we are getting completely shutdown.
I am also looking forward to the Rupp-Boyle-Prust line, tough to play against and knocking in a decent amount of goals for a bottom line.
