But you have to look at the team he plays for. The Rangers have 71 goals, 2nd lowest in the NHL only to CBJ (oh the irony). Our leading scoring is Rick Nash, he has 10 goals: there are 42 players who have more goals than him. I think that if Halpern was playing on a team that wasn't completely inept offensively he would have better point production. As I said earlier in the thread, I'm pretty "meh" about this move, but you can't blame Halpern for poor offensive numbers when the whole team sucks offensively.
