The intersquad game had a score of 1-0... that team could not score, even in pre-season last year, even though they went 6-0.
The thing about the avs last preseason was even though they won, every single game was baaaaad. This year about half the games were bad, maybe a little less than half. Our PP is still just insanely terrible though. It's gonna be a better year but with a worthless PP it's still gonna be very painful.
This year they look more... hopeful. And barring the catastrophe injuries of last year, and I believe either the, or among the worst in modern day history, goaltending they got last year, they should bounce back nicely from that point total last year. That's not saying much because a 30 point turn around would still have them fighting for last place.
