GF vs GA

I remember last season thinking we weren't as bad as our record indicated so I went back and looked at the standings, particularly GF vs GA.

Here is a link if you want to look for yourself:

Our record last year was an anomaly in the sense that generally speaking over the course of an 82 game schedule the standings will fall in line with GF vs GA.

However we finished 20th in that category at -14 and 28th in the standings. Several other teams had significantly worse +/- than we did.

When you consider that, plus the injuries, plus the emergence of the 2 Gally's, the addition of Prust and to a lesser extent Armstrong, and the excellent coaching of Therrien so far and our success is really no surprise.

This year we are tied for 2nd in the conference with Ottawa for +/-

The most shocking turn around team to date this year is Tampa. Nearly worst to first so far.

Have to say I'm quite thankful for the anomaly last year. Welcome aboard Alex G!
