Jerred Smithson has played 12 games with Toronto, averaged 10:19 and recorded exactly one shot on goal.
One month into the season, and the Leafs' biggest struggle is offence. Anybody who saw that happening, raise your hand high into the air. No you didn't. Put it down, you liar.
Toronto was 5th in the NHL in goals last season and their biggest strength is the amount of speed and skill they have on the wings. Another strength is the sheer number of quality puck-moving defenceman they employ, so it should be a little surprising that the team is tied for 14th in the NHL with 2.67 goals per game. Michael Traikos notes that the Leafs scored 1.92 goals per game in November. When you break it down further, the reason becomes a little more apparent.
