Also as good as Ned is, I don't think you can hoist him as the next big thing in net from a backup role in the reg season (correct?) and 1 playoff run, even as a rookie. Still betting my money on Fucale lol.
I think Plymouth has better forwards, London might have the talent but some guys aren't performing.
Broadhurst 1g in his last 8 games
Griffith 2g in 11 playoff games
Rupert before injury 1 goal in 7 games
Anderson 1 goal in 11 games
Welychka 1 goal in 6 games
Right there if Rupert is healthy almost half of London's forwards. Not to mention that London doesn't get a lot of offense from the blueline which can put more stress on the fact the forwards aren't producing. Harrington terrific defensive dman but has some of the worst instincts ever on the offensive end. Points doesn't mean talent? But if you're not getting points the team isn't scoring goals either especially with the defense not producing much.
