Those are "decent scorers".

I should rephrase. Richards and Gaborik have not played up to their standard at all. Gaborik, IMO, has been playing well as of late, with tonight being his best game.

Still, the offensive zone strategy, if there even is any, is mind boggling. There's hardly anyone ever in the slot, they never use the point men or take shots from the point. If they do take shots from the point, they hesitate long enough to take away the lane. It's just simple and stupid mistakes they're making. Tortorella says "he doesn't coach offense". Well, if this team is going to succeed, he better damn well start.
