Again I ask, how does fourth in scoring in the league point to a problem with scoring? I feel like if you're 4th in GF and 30th in GA that the problem can be pinpointed to one specific area of the game. Now whether it's defending or goaltending, or a combination of both (it's this) is a different debate.
It was just a specific point about the kids hot holding up their end which is really inexcusable.

Gordon, Perron, Joensuu, Belov, Ference, are vry helpful additions. But not if the kids are just going to play worse with the help.

obviously goaltending is the bigger problem but that doesn't preclude concern with hall, eberle, yak, J Schultz right now.

I think one of the more telling things is how much the introduction of some intelligent hockey players has made the incumbents look far worse in comparison.
