They have 33 goals for and 30 against. Yes their goals against is spectacular, but their goals for is dead last in the OHL. If they can ever score more than 2 goals a game, this team can do some real damage.
I'm not too concerned about scoring goals. I guarantee you they won't be last in goals for by the end of the season, they won't even be in the bottom five. Not only have they played the least amount of games in the OHL (at this point most teams have played at least 3 more games then them, not one team has played the same or less) but an offensive style game is just not the type of game they've been playing recently under Burnett. They are a really defensive-minded team, and nothing is wrong with this. They've built around size - only two guys on their roster right now are under 6 feet tall, and they just simply play a physical and defensive-styled game.

It's working for them too, even considering that they've played the least amount of games in the OHL, they are still 2nd in their division and 4th in the east. (8-4-1)
I don't think they need to change anything, they are doing absolutely fine as it is. They got a lot of guys who can score, and they're playing under a great defensive strategy, one of the best in the league.

I'm looking forward to a good playoff run this year.
