But a huge issue regarding the identity of this team is Richards' and Gaborik's non-production. When your top offensive performers dont perform, it sends ripple effects down the lineup.
Brian Boyle, Taylor Pyatt, etc, shouldnt have to go out there and think about scoring goals - its kind of difficult not to when you're down on the scoreboard and 2 of your top 3 offensive guys are continually skating in mud.
We are the same page, completely.
Any comment regarding the teams state in any of the hot threads that are on this board right sooner or later wind up mentioning 19 and/or 10.
