That's true, BUT, Moulson I think will be a real lift for the team. Two goals in his first game. And the team didn't get any worse. That trade was one of the most lateral moves a team can make, a 30 goal winger for a 30 goal winger.
Ryan Miller also always has the ability to make a game interesting, even with a poor team in front of him. And their performance offensively really hasn't been worse, it's almost identical, 1.64G/GM to 1.57G/GM. Statistically, it's been "worse" but for all reasonable purposes, their offense has been equal.
It will be tougher than fans make it out to be. Remember, we're not exactly San Jose or Chicago. No win is an easy win.
I have a feeling it's going to be one of those 2-1, or 1-0 games, where BOTH teams have issues generating chances and scoring.
