You've got a team with Strome, Ritchie, and Shipley...you're a powerhouse. They can score when they want. Their defence is suspect, hence the record.
Strome and Ritchie don't even show that much.
We must have different definitions of "don't even show that much."
Strome - 90 points in 51 games.
Ritchie - 72 points in 49 games (incl 38 goals).
If that's not much, I'm scared to see what is.
Their biggest issue is they have Festarini in net...and that's it. Moran is 16 and has struggled this year (GAA over 4.50, SV % under .870). He's young, but when you have no real back-up, you'll have issues.
