Hannan's +/- is not a result of him on the ice for a significantly higher number of goals allowed, it's that we simply don't score with him on the ice. Klein was on the ice for more ES goals against, but, the most ES goals for as well. Weber was on the ice for 4 fewer ES goals against, but an equal number of goals allowed a man down with less PK time.

Right now our vets aren't leading ... our PK isn't functional (2 goals allowed in each of the past four games) ... the shot decisions are poor with more shot attempts into shinpads than on goal ... the shot attempts that get through are off target far too often ... guys like Spaling and Halischuk who provided secondary scoring last season simply aren't right now ... Pekka looks mortal ... right now only Bourque and Clune are showing the most heart, a trait we need to see from the guys with letters on their chest. From a talent perspective, this roster is similar to last season's rather effective squad. From an execution perspective, they suck most nights. Whatever the dynamic is that changed over the summer beyond the departure of Suter, they need to fix it or they are going to let this season slip away from them in the near future.
