Question: Shots against average?

Is our shots against average a result of poor defense or poor fore checking? ie if we had better forwards what would our average look like? (sorry for the hypoyetical Q)

It is a result of poor defense in our zone. We are constantly chasing the puck around our own zone, therefore the opponents get more and more scoring chances.

We are really stinking bad in our own zone.

It's a result of the team being poor at everything. Ineffective/infrequent forechecking has been a big part of our lack of possession in the offensive zone, which leads to lots of opponent possession in our defensive zone. In the defensive zone coverage has been poor.
