Depends on what you mean by underperform. If you mean play worse, I dont agree with that as a general statement, but if you mean put up less points then that is likely true. But that has to do with the defensive style of the team. And why is there such a defensive style over say, the last few decades ? My answer is there is probably a defensive first culture anyway, but also because of the lack of offensive stars. When you havent drafted and developed ( and yes, we draft middling of the pack ) or lucked out in a trade or nabbed a UFA star in his prime in terms of having genuine offensive star type players, you need to have a more defensive system. So no surprise a player coming or going may have higher point totals elsewhere.
