I think a lot of the Bulls lack of scoring can be found with struggling players. What has happened to Sandlak? I mean, he doesn't look terrible out there, but he just hasn't been generating much of anything. He is way better than 4 points in 16 games. And then there's Brassard, which I try to be optimistic about because he has such great potential. But on some nights he just doesn't show up. And then there is Joseph Cramarossa, just another player who should be putting up much higher numbers. I think if these players can find their game, the Bulls can get back on track.

We'll see how they do tonight against Saginaw, I'm sensing some goals.
Unfortunately you don't see any other team playing a one goal scorer on Powerplay, Penalty Kill and at the end of a game as the 6th attacker, not to mention starting games without some "influence" if you know what I mean. I have listened and watched what people have been calling for years now and it's sad to see when a team needs scoring and yet can't give that extra ice to some of the better known goal scorers or even to developing the rookies better. Look at Saturday's game and the only goal scorers were Petti and Berisha. Imagine being able to allocate extra ice to those guys as well as some more to Crammer Jr. and Heff? The latter 2 would be much better off for next year when they will continue to get more duties. Formula has been wrong for years and there's no end in sight.

Gaunce's 4 goals aren't gonna change the world when he comes back as the team even with him in the lineup isn't scoring enough. Only 2 or 3 guys on the team have broken 20 goals in a season regardless of amount of ice so that means the rest have been playing year in, year out without adding that much needed offense.

At the end of the day if you don't change the formula then only the laws of probability will sway the inevitable outcome. I for one think the team can play a slightly wider open game given the fact they have Malcolm in net and guys like Austin on D. Can't hurt to try for a change as Bulls are still playing .500 hockey.
