His defensive system won't work here? Really?

We should go back to missing the playoffs and being the laughingstock of the league.
Scoring was not "supposed" to be the achillies heel for this team.
After signing both Gomez adn Drury the team was supposed to score with ease.
35+ from Jagr
30+ from Shanny
25+ from Drury
20+ from Gomez
20+ from Avery (some on this board, of which I am not one, would have you believe he's capable of 25+)
The only player to touch those numbers is Drury, everyone else fell short, age? a factor yes. System? Also a factor.
Scoring was supposed to be this teams strength in addition to playing a sound defensive game. But it didn't work out that way.
Do I think Melrose is the answer? No, but I do believe we need a new HC, one that can better utilize our ability to play in the offensive zone all the while maintaining a defensive presence.
