Last year the Habs were in the higher standings for shots for and goals for, they were not quite as good defensively as this year. They had as many, if not more giveaways last year. So improved in some areas and regressed in others.

Therrien has said more than once that you need to score 3 goals a game in the NHL to win. Daigneault actually gives his defensemen an objective of 10 shots per game from the D.

I guess the coaching staff just decided on a whim that they were going to change that this year. Tell them to shoot less, score less. You know what guys, all that stuff about scoring 3 goals a game, and the D guys stop putting pucks on net. Their years and years of experience all of a sudden went out the window and they changed their whole philosophies. Because after all, it can't possibly be that other factors are the cause of the lower shots and scoring. It has to be the coaching staff! I guess that means they were great last year but this year they aren't, because players are robots and don't change their play whatsoever ever.
