With players like Naslund, Gomez, Drury on the line up, they have to start coming at some point. Talent like that doesn't just shrivel up and not do anything. Something has to happen with players like that, it's just going to take time.
Seems like you've just picked a convenient sample of players to make your point.
What does Staal not scoring have to do with anything? That's not Staal's game, at least not yet.
Look, I could make the opposite point if I picked, oh, say these players. Watch:
In short, why should we be worried about the team based on your random sample of players? We have to look at the whole picture.
PS It's only seven games.
PPS Naslund has 1g 3a...you left that out of your analysis. So they have 5 points among your 'sample.'
fixed my naslund mistake.
my point is simply this, i know its early and this is a small sample, but these are players we NEED TO SCORE. naslund, drury and dawes are the 3 guys who we thought would be our snipers and we have a total of 1 goal from them so far.
im not panicking just making an observation about KEY forwards who yet to contribute on the scoreboard. and many nights these 3 are invisible.
to answer your question above, these arent just any players im highlighting- they are key offensive players who seem to have no game so far.
stats dont lie. even though its early, trends start somewhere. lets see how these numbers look after 20 games. im expecting them to be much better, if not, im not sure voros, dubi and zherdev can continue to carry this team.
