A small improvement from last place in 5 on 5 is nothing to rest your laurels on.

I believe the bar should be set higher than "not the worst".
I'm not sure I understand. So far this season we rank 14th in even strength goals for with 26. Last year we finished the season in 23rd spot in this category.

Consequently, our even strength goals against has remained at about the same place as we finished last season. We ended last season in 7th place in even strength goals against and so far we are 8th this season with just 21 goals against at 5 on 5.

To summarize, in ES GF, so far this season, we went from 23rd to 14th place, a 9 spot jump, all while keeping our ES GA numbers to a constant pace. How much is a "big improvement" in your world, if this is just a "small improvement" ?
