Folks, all these stats are very interesting, but you do know that on the ice the SHARKS have the fewest GA in the Western Conference and 3rd only to Boston and Ottawa in the NHL, right?
Our problem is not defense, it is the PP/
It's not really Murray or Burish's job to score on PP...is it?
The Stats that Jux is talking about are not so much about offense as they about the puck going in the right direction. It means when Murray is on the ice the Sharks are unable to get the puck out of their own zone basically. Or when it is in the offensive zone the Sharks are unable to get shots off. So yes, he is not providing offense, but he's also tilting the ice in the opponents favor whenever he is on.
