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.
