Aren't they? Over a full season, the Pens' first half pace was just under 120 points (118). Over a full season, the Pens' second half pace would be under 100 points. Still good enough to make the playoffs, but hardly the "elite" team that folks defending Bylsma/the roster would have you believe they are.

The GF/GA differential is also a bit alarming. The team was a collective +40 over the first 41 games. The team is only a collective +4 over the second 39 games. It's giving up way more goals (106 to 94), while scoring a lot less (134 to 110). IMO, that highlights how much this team has struggled during the second half of the season.
