And you probably shouldn't talk about things if you have no clue what you're talking about... The Caps played in what was easily the most offensive restricted coaching system last year, not only for Defensemen, but for forwards too. And it wasn't much better under Boudreau in 2011.

I'd be shocked if Green scored at a 40 goal pace again, but a 15-20g 45-60a season probably isn't too far fetched if he stays healthy.
So what happened in 2011? Hunter wasn't there, so why was he on pace for 40 points?
