Younger players carrying this offense

We saw this (with a little less scoring) at the end of last season with Bergenheim, Comeau and Okposo the three best players most nights for Ted Nolan last March.

Now we are seeing it again but with Okposo four goals/no assits four games.
Sean Bergenheim before his injury putting together his career best streak.
Blake Comeau three goals, eleven assists since 2/18.
Frans Nielsen for his +2 on the season has a goal and three points in four games.
Josh Bailey, goal three assists in four games and great chances against Montreal.
Jeff Tambellini, two goals, three assist in five games.
Mike Iggulden, goal, four points in five games.
Jesse Joensuu/Kurtis McLean first career goals.

Unfortunately as expected:
Richard Park no goals/two assists since 1/3. (seventeen games)
Nate Thompson two goals, twenty nine games this season.
Andy Hilbert two goals, five assists since 12/23. (twenty three games)
Tim Jackman, four goals, two assists, minus nineteen since 11/8 callup where you do not get a minus for being on the ice killing penalty.

And for a second year in a row. (granted Nielsen was injured)
Trent Hunter, four goals, twelve assists assists since 12/4.

This is why you have to work in the prospects and cut down the veterans not producing. The goals this club is scoring lately are off knowing how to create offense.
