Nothing ground-breaking here, just a look back at the regular season, trying to find some common demonator, as to why the 2009-10 team improved by eighteen points, and the 2010-11 team fell into a season ending free fall so early.
Sure the man games lost were dramatically different.
New York finished 27th/30, despite recording 47 points, in their final 47 games, with over 600 man games lost to injury.
Despite Streit's absence for 82 games, the goals allowed were exactly the same from the previous year, even with tons of prospects on defense or rookie signings.
Without Okopso, until January and will little production from him and Josh Bailey, with all these injuries, the team still scored seven more goals than 2009-10.
