*Buzzsaw* Posted February 20, 2015 Share Posted February 20, 2015 Obviously the season is not finished and a lot could change. But a pattern has been established. 2013 - 2014 - 82 games Goals For: 196 - average of 2.39 goals scored per game Goals Against: 223 - average of 2.72 goals scored against per game Points: 83 - average of 1.01 points per game 2014 - 2015 - 57 games played. Goals For: 160 - average of 2.81 goals scored per game - over 82 games: 230 GF Goals Against: 150 - average of 2.63 goals scored against per game - over 82 games: 216 GA Points: 69 - average of 1.21 points per game - over 82 games: 99 points ---- The conclusions I draw from the above stats, is our big improvement is coming from better offensive production, but our defense has actually not improved very much. That is despite the fact we have a more stable goaltending pair. It seems to me our real weakness is our defense corps... and that is not going to be fixed by the guys we have in development, they have already been called up.... they are playing now. Now normally teams tend not to take defensemen with their #1 picks, unless they are players like Aaron Ekblad. But it seems to me Benning really needs to consider using his #1 pick to take the best available defenseman... preferably one with some size. Comments?
