Put Horton on another team and he could score 30 every year but I don't think it would happen here.

The Bruins aren't an offensive minded team and that drags down goal and point totals.

Under Julien they've only had a guy score 30 goals two times. One was Kessel with 36 and one was Lucic with 30.

Also...when the players aren't scoring they don't play with confidence which further reduces offense.

Anyway, I think if you put Seguin on a more offensive-minded team he might have 30 points but the team he played for would probably have 5 less wins than the Bruins. It sucks but defensive hockey is winning hockey.
Agree completely.
