That's ~120 over an 82 game schedule. He has 0 goals this year, is not a threat to score at all, which allows defenders to cheat extensively on passing lanes.
That, and zone entries. Wasting too much energy / time on the PP by not being able to enter the zone with efficiency. We lose an extra 3-5 seconds every single time we have to enter the zone, which is not acceptable if the Canucks want to win the Cup.
Well it looked a lot better yesterday and I thought Henrik looked fine. He made great passes to Kesler, who hit the post and then whiffed on the second attempt. Plus, Daniel, Kesler, etc. are there to shoot the puck.
