The Kings’ offensive struggles have been well-documented. Not only are they averaging the fewest number of goals per game in the NHL this season (2.14) but they’re on pace to finish this season with 182 goals, down from last season’s total of 219. The startling thing is that the offensive drop, almost entirely, has been across the board. The numbers indicate that almost every Kings player will be down in scoring from last season. The player-by-player numbers are below. To be perfectly clear, this isn’t intended as science. There are numerous factors that can influence/skew these numbers, and of course they don’t take into account any defense play. But, if you’re curious, here they are. The full-season projections assume that every player will play in the remaining 32 games (which isn’t possible, numbers-wise), but that’s probably the fairest way to do it. I also eliminated the injured players and Davis Drewiske, whose sample size (seven games) is just too small. So, here you go. The 2011-12 full-season projections are followed by last season’s totals…
