6 of 21 under Hunter. They've been outshot by just over five per game under Hunter on average. With Backstrom: outshot by 2.875...without Backstrom: 12.4. That last figure is even with a recent favorable home schedule. Brutal.
The numbers are deceiving. I could be wrong but aren’t they giving up a full goal less a game?
a) define "long term contract."
b) put the prime example of long terms contracts gone bad (dipietro) to the side.
c) name any players who "lived up to" his "long term contract" (as defined in a, above).
honestly, i'm quite tired at the moment, but can't come up with anyone.
