Derek Dorsett currently has more goals than Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel. Just saying.

@vinny_in_vancouverYou're overestimating their past defence and past bottom 6. For several seasons they had one of the worst defenses in the league. It's still pretty mediocre this season. They've improved their bottom 6 this season but the 2,3, and 4th lines aren't contributing. The top line of Eichel, Kane, and Pominville are creating nearly all of the offense.
@SabreFan1 They definitely sacrificed their D, but it's still a team game, and they have enough forwards that are supposed to be two-way players. What gets me is that even with all of that O talent, they still have games where they are not able to generate enough O. Imho, they should be just as good offensively as the Leafs. I definitely think they're underperforming and guys that are supposed to be the leaders are somehow not able to impose their will on the team. But your team has the assets to get the D help that you need - unfortunately, your old GM Murray seemed very attached to all the forwards he has brought to the team. Imho, with just a few moves, your team can contend (there, I said the 'C' word).
@vinny_in_vancouver I pretty much agree with that. I wish I knew what their major malfunction as a team is.... It's quite frustrating to watch.
