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" ?

Especially since this resulted in being one of the strongest 5 on 5 teams in the league, I believe 7th currently, after that's been anywhere from average to a disaster for Montreal ever year since Rejean Houle.
