Carl Soderberg-Loui Eriksson Duo A Bright Spot In Bruins’ Loss To Avalanche

BOSTON — Not much has gone right offensively for the Bruins through four games of the 2014-15 season.

Carl Soderberg Shines, But His Ceiling Is Deceivingly Low

I’m pretty big on shooting percentage as a solid indicator of whether or not a guy is playing over his head offensively in a given season. Quality of competition is another number that I put a lot of stock in.
