Why is Bingo's offence so anemic?

I just checked the AHL.com top scorers and our top scorer, Jakob Silfverberg, currently sits at #124 in the league... on page friggin' seven. I expected at least one Senator in the top forty.

Where is our offence? It might be simply spread out evenly but where are our offensive stars? No one is sticking out and taking charge. Is it because we have a young, inexperienced team? Is it because we have an inexperienced coach? Is it the system in play? Are we playing very defense-first like the parent team did under Jacques Martin? Doesn't appear so from the games I've watched but we do seem very disorganized. Is it because there hasn't been enough time yet for the players to adapt to the system? Is it because many of our forwards have to adapt to North-American sized ice? A combo of all this?

It's not supposed to be for lack of talent but the execution seriously doesn't yield the offensive results expected so far. I know it's early in the season but, with no NHL, I need something...

Yes, I'm an old-school run and gun fan who would prefer to see our teams win 8-7 rather than 3-2, and therefore behind the times.
