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.
Fact of the matter is even the best offensive teams do not score 5 goals every game (Pittsburgh scored 3 twice, 4 once, and 5 twice this season). At the end of the day you gotta be able to win a few games when your best players get shut down--tough thing to do when you give up 4-6 goals every game).
