That will also be a task Lavy will need to address we will miss Spaling on the PK and Goose and Fish will have even more minutes on the PK if things do not change.
There was much said about the increase in minutes Goose played but the PK was a big part of it. Even the number of faceoffs he took on the PP added to his minutes.
Cutiting down the PK is a must Neal will need to reduce his PIM's to lower than Horni"s level just to remain equal to last season. It is doable
