It should come up every time an incorrect assessment of last season's performance is made. It's just factual, unfortunately. The team's metrics were far better than their results. We shelled the Oilers just as bad last season but only won 2/4 games. One period this season was three games worth of goals last season! I hope the pendulum swings the other way for us this season, or at least stays neutral!

I noticed that. On the replay Drew also said Pavelski was "smart to let the puck go to Marleau" ... not sure if that was the case but I suppose it was possible. Either way that was a grade A setup. That's the kind of magic Thornton has and has never lost ... his feints and redirecting of attention are incredible sometimes.
