By Bob Trask – There have been a few pleasant surprises and some huge disappointments among Habs forwards when it comes to point production this year. There have also been a handful of players who have brought what they have always brought to the table in terms of offensive production.
The overall result has been a disappointing offensive performance at the team level.
The point production this year compared to the career average point production of a few selected forwards is illustrated in the table below.
A caveat: A large sample size with regard to games played (Gallagher, Armia, Hoffman) is a more accurate reflection in relative terms than a small sample size (Caufield, Pitlick and Poehling).
This disappointment in this is the lack of production from the veterans who were supposed to be the leaders on the team. Instead they have stumbled while the younger players have been relied upon too heavily to try to pick up the slack.
