This used to be a huge team weakness as recently as two years ago.
DEFINITELY. We use to have such an issue with them.
Over the course of an 82-game season, you lose site that things like faceoffs can win you games, but they really can. Soupy's GWG only happened last night because we won the faceoff. In a playoff series, you really see the value of things like this and why SO many people put emphasis on these kinds of stats.
Tallon and Santos have done a great job bringing in guys who can win those key draws. Goc is a monster in the circle and I love the way he's playing now.
