Then why did his offense take such a massive nosedive in a matter of 3 months from summer of 1975, to fall of that year. Oh yeah, he wasnt playing in the system that suited his style. I have seen plenty of boston bruins games from the early 70's, esposito needed someone to carry the puck up and do all of the work, he didnt have the ability to carry a team and be the offensive juggernaut like a bobby hull or jaromir jagr, he needed a supporting cast.
