Hudson has definitely improved things this season. Last year, DCU allowed 50 goals. Unless we give up a whopping 4 goals per game for the final 5 games, we are going to improve on this defensive stat. My guess is we will give up 35 goals for the season. This is excellent. That would have put us in the top 3 last year. The problem has obviously been scoring, but with Q1 and Moreno out for half of the season, and Moreno injured and unfit for the other half, we've just had no scoring punch. Not surprisingly, our goal production is 21 so far, exactly half of last year's total. The reality is that Hudson's coaching has not kept us out of the playoffs -- injuries have. And despite a horrific 21 goals and aging veterans with bloated salaries, we still have a slim chance of making the playoffs. One can find fault with Hudson's player selection and game strategies at times, but really I think most of the time he's been a part of the solution not a part of the problem.
