I think our puck movement this year in general has been much improved. That's why it's hard to pinpoint why our scoring has fallen off the cliff. I've been impressed by all our defensemen in their own zone. (minus Kindl and sometimes Green) We're not giving the puck away as much and the goals we give up are usually deflections
Am I the only one that's been way disappointed in Green's play? Like, I could kinda maybe stomach all the defensive lapses and him regularly getting walked like a dog if he was scoring goals or breathing some life into the powerplay. And I could kinda maybe stomach the ack of goals and powerplay points from the guy that was supposed to be our go-to offensive defensman if he was at least solid defensively. But he's really struggling on both sides of the puck lately.
He's always been bad defensively, but now he's not producing offensively either. Washington knew what they were doing when they let him walk.
We are a sniper away from being a serious competitor. So many one goal games. We can compete with every team in the league and we only lose by a goal. If we had a pure scorer we could be on the winning side more
Read somewhere that we have something like four back to back nights of games in October and two in November.. that should give both goalies plenty of an opportunity to pull ahead for the starting job early in the season. And if both shine, even better! This is a great "problem" to have
