Correct. 2 franchise records.
1) 2 goalies with 4 shutouts
2) 26 wins when being outshot

I think we just need to trust trotz. He can do no wrong
josh bailey produces no matter what line he plays.

For a defensively focused team we sure seem to give up a lot of shots, and lately spend a lot of time in our own end. I guess we can sustain this?? Gave up 36 last night in Lehner's shutout.

They've given up the 12th fewest shots against/games played, so I'd say they're average-to-good relative to the rest of the league as far as what they're giving up. They just don't generate a lot of shots (partly by design, but I'm not sure the design calls for them to be 30th in shots/games played...), which is why they're outshot so much.

I think the team will be looking forward to a second shot at Calgary after stinking up the Saddledome. I'm going Thursday night against Johnny Bedsheets. This wont be a game to take the kiddies to. Its tailgate time!

I guess it's more lately that it seems like we're giving up more shots. I could be completely wrong, but we seem to play more in our d-zone of late and on our heals quite often. 12th in shots against isn't that bad, but being the stingiest team in goals allowed I would actually think we'd be closer to the top.

Trade Aho, MVS, Otto, Bellows, two firsts (2021 and 2022 because we won’t have 2019, 20 after stone trade) for Huberdeau.

Yep I wonder if there are any not obvious players available that we’ve speculated on? Getzlaf, anyone from LA, etc...

Not getting the feeling they're going to do much. I get not paying crazy asking prices, but that's gonna be tough with Columbus loading up. They've gotten a hell of a lot deeper and more talented over the last few days.

At this point just adding someone like Johansson may be the best course of action. I want Stone, but potentially two firsts + two other assets would be a tough pill to swallow.

I could, however, see an outside-chance scenario that Ottawa gets concerned about their lack of veteran presence since Duchene/Dzingel/Stone are all shipping out and, given the log-jam on the roster at RW if they traded for Stone, the Islanders were willing to throw in a signed-long-term Bailey as a piece. Not too many vets are going to be dying to sign-on to play with a rebuilding trash franchise and Dorion has to recognize that.

I’ve been saying giving up an Eberle or Bailey in different trade scenarios recently but after watching the last ten games or so I honestly don’t think we can. This team is beyond desperate for offensive depth.

Take your pick from the bad teams on the top-half of this list, the ones that have some cap issues. DET/ANA/EDM/LAK/MIN/maybe FLA. Those are the teams you go looking to poach guys from.

I'd love to try and get Rakell out of ANA, if we're talking guys that haven't been discussed at all. 25, perennial 30g scorer, plays all three forward positions and signed to a dirt-cheap deal for 3 more years after this one. Wouldn't be cheap though.
