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.
So your point is that Pittsburgh did not improve defensively post-Coffey?
That Coffey was not bad defensively when in Pittsburgh?
