Guys guys guys...
I don't understand what is so hard to grasp here.
It's been the EXACT SAME PROBLEM for years!
How many times do you need to be baffled and confused as to why we CONSISTENTLY get shut out by average or backup/no-name goaltenders?
How many times do you need to see this team "dominate" and yet still get shut out despite outshooting the opponent?
THIS TEAM CAN'T FINISH. IT LACKS GOALSCORERS AND ALWAYS HAS.
Guys like Patch or Gionta will put up goals, but they also put up a ton of shots on goal and eventually they go in. The problem is, you can't COUNT on these guys to score. They lack the talent to be gamebreakers.
It's been the same issue for YEARS now.
I couldn't stand Kovalev but you know what? The guy could finish.
Putting up 40 shots on net doesn't meant squat. It doesn't mean we are "dominating" other teams and they just happen to magically have a hot goaltender when they face us... 40 shots on net shooting from the point is useless.
Yours in Christ,
