Yes, because it has way more variables than looking at the season in which he was traded where the roster was mostly the same, the players were the same age, and Bowman hadn't had time to pull the team as far towards defensive play.
The fact is when Coffey left Pittsburgh they allowed more goals that season. According to you (and others) we should immediately see them allowing a goal less a game or something like that because he was apparently so terrible defensively.
As for the next season, if you want to just overlook the emergence of Jagr, Francis and Samuelsson playing a dozen more games each, Barrasso playing much better etc. and say it was Coffey's absence.. hey have at it, I guess.
