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.
My point is that offense is this team's calling card. It has to be. We have three number one overall draft picks among our forwards. If you score a maximum of two goals in half of your games, then consistent offense is indeed a problem--I'm sorry. The lack of consistent goal production so far this season is a legitimate issue. We're 1-5-1 on the season so far. This ship has to right itself soon, or this will be the eighth consecutive season out of the playoffs. None of the teams ahead of us are going to be looking back, if the players on this team don't turn it around in short order.

I'm pleased with our bottom six too, but my point is that we're not getting consistent offense from the players who should be bringing a high level offensive game. Just an observation.
