The team gave up 30 goals in the first 6 games of the season (avg = 5.00) and 56 in 19 games since (avg = 2.95). They gave 6+ goals three times in the first 6 games and once in the past 19. They are improving. It won't be great, but I think they should be able to distance themselves from the spotlight of last place.

2009-10 Sens; Last Playoff team.

Michalek - Spezza - Alfredsson
Reg/Fol - Fisher - Kovalev
Ruutu - Kelly - C. Neil
Reg/Fol - Winchester - Shannon
Cheechoo

Phillips - Volchenkov
Kuba - Karlsson
Campoli - Carkner

Elliott

There are 4 significant players missing from the 09-10 playoff team: Fisher, Kovalev, Kelly and Volchenkov. Smith has progress a lot towards replacing Kelly and Gonchar's having a great season, replacing the impact that Volchenkov had that year.

The 20 players listed above played 50+ games for that team and 11 are still here. The other 5 missing players were Elliott, Campoli, Ruutu, Shannon and Cheechoo.

I'm not seeing a big enough difference here to completely rule out the playoffs.

Kuba, Phillips and Gonchar have improved quite substantially from their play last season and from the first 6 games of this season.

Anderson is still an improvement over Elliott. It just remains to be seen how big of one.

Here's the old theoretical average scoring lists for forwards and D-men:

Rk/Avg/Pts ... Player/Rk/Pts
1A (1-30) - 15th - 26 ... Spezza / 24th / 23
1B (31-60) - 45th - 20 ... Michalek / 31st / 21
1C (61-90) - 75th - 16 ...

2A (91-120) - 105th - 14 ... Foligno / 95th / 15
2B (121-150) - 135th - 13 ... Smith / 130th / 13
2C (151-180) - 165th - 11 ... Greening / 165th / 11 ... Alfie / 167th / 11

D-Men
Rk/Avg/Pts ... Player/Rk/Pts
#1 - 15th - 16 ... Karlsson / 1st / 22 ... Gonchar / 12th / 17
#2 - 45th - 10
#3 - 75th - 8 ... F. Kuba / 63rd / 8

The average for all 9 positions is 141 points from the 'average' and we've gotten 141 points from our 9 guys.
