Fellas, the difference isn't so much the "D" as it was the forwards having the puck a lot more last season vs this season. It seemed last season we had the puck (possession wise) a lot more.

This year, it seemed that we'd get 1 shot, then no rebounds...yesterday was actually pretty decent at continued pressure in the offensive zone, we had that a lot last year and a lot of that was due to Whitney, he knows how to control the play, just like others have said.

This year, we were basically a turnover machine in the offensive zone from the forwards and Yandle's occasional lapse of channeling Jovonovski.

The "D" is better, the forwards weren't...it makes a big difference. We weren't healthy, last year we were, it makes a big difference, especially when we had to call up career AHLers to Bolduc, Johnson, Connor to help out and Sullivan was absolute garbage.

Moss was the only positive from the offseason as he was without a doubt better than Pyatt at every part of the game.
