Single Status Update
Ray Ferraro brought up a good point: We improved our defense but where will our scoring come from? Pierre McGuire added that our PP has to be better and noted our new additions. McGuire went further, saying that if we have a Top-15 PP, we will be in the playoff hunt. Agree or disagree?

we’ve had trouble generating secondary scoring for quite awhile. hopefully, they find a scoring winger for bo and pearson. truth is we don’t have much scoring from our 3rd and 4th line. we should get more from our defense, but if we don’t, we’ll falter again.
teams know if they stop our top line, we struggle mightily. weaned output from baertschi, leivo, virtanen and roussel. gusev might help if he is picked up.
Miller Pettersson Boesser not hard to imagine 30 goals from each, 30 assists
Pearson Horvat Eriksson 25 goals, 25 assist from this group, tho I'm high balling Eriksson on last years production when this line was put together
Sutter Beagle Virtanen We should be able to expect 15-20 goals from each person on this line.
Roussel Gaudette Leivo Should be able to rely on these guys to be in the 8-15 range for goals
Then for the defense, if we can manage at least 10 goals apiece, that is another 60....
Might need Markstrom to go for the long bomb a couple of times, but the goal output isn't unreasonable, and anything extra is just icing....exciting icing.
Oh, and I forgot about Baertschi and Goldobin in this mix....I didn't forget about Schaller tho...but that's because I don't see him here except for injury call up.
