Boyle, Pyatt, Moore, Dorsett, etc aren't going to contribute enough offensively and I don't need stupid advanced statistics to tell me otherwise. The bottom line is this team offensively is challenged and they're small and soft. I personally think it's going to be a struggle all year and the defense and Henrik will have to bail the team out
Agree wholeheartedly. The "so called" experts who rate our forwards as #8 in the league and think on Boston and Pittsburgh may beat us out must be permanent residents of fantasy island also.
I see a year in which we struggle to make a 7th or 8th seed; these advanced statistica are a bunch of pure, unadulterated ********!
Like you said, where in the hell are the goals gonna come from with only one(1) legitimate 30+ goal scorer and perhaps 2-3 guys who may sniff 20+ goals?
Krieder hasn't proven **** a/o yet and Hags isn't a natural goal scorer.
So who else is gonna fill the net? Is AV gonna all of a sudden gonna turn a moribund offense into an elite offense? Good luck with that!
