It's fairly obvious why both of them are struggling substantially in the offensive zone.
Not really...

Sean Couturier has 43 shots. It's quite simple to figure out how many goals he would have if his shooting percentage had normalized. If we assume his normal shooting% is 11.2% (like last year), you do .112 * 43 shots = 4.81. If Couturier was shooting 11.2%, he'd have 4.81 goals instead of the 2 goals that he currently has. That would give him 9.81 points in 25 games, or a 32pts per 82 pace. Not exactly setting the world on fire there.

If we assume he's shooting 13.4% (RNH's from last yr), you do .134*43 shots =5.76 goals. That would give him 10.76 points in 25 games or a 35 pts per 82 pace. Again, not exactly great.
