When poor journalism attacks

Today's award for lazy journalism goes surprisingly to Ross McKeon of yahoo sports here who in his team by team final rankings review wrote the Isles scored the least goals in the league while allowing far too many shots and that they will need a lot of good luck to recruit with going in that direction in determing whether it was a good or bad year.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I know doing thirty reviews in a quick paragraph is a tough thing and if Mr McKeon wants to write it was a bad year that's his opinion and fair enough. There are a lot of good reasons can be given but to claim shots against would not be one of them.

The Isles cut their shots against from last year by close to two hundred shots from 2437 to 2248.

Also his review of the Blues seems very biased in favor of the team. Did he copy his words about Andy Murray from a year ago? Blues had close to three hundred shots less than the Islanders.
