It'll suggest the forwards are cheating from their defensive responsibilities to get more numbers
, and that's not all that impressive IMO. But if they clamp down and start getting back to 0, 1, 2 goals allowed in most games while continuing to score themselves, then I'll feel like the answer is yes.
This is what got us the 5 losses at home, and the difference between this and last season's defensive play and win/loss record. The Blues can, possibly score between 2.8 and 2.9 goals per game, and still win games at a pace close to last year's. But, if they continue trying to score 3.5, they'll continue to lose a lot of games they should otherwise win.
