The problem is that his solution for everything is a) focus MORE on defense and b) switch up the lines.

Could it be maybe, just maybe that he's abandoned the up tempo attacking style that the team was constructed to play? Could the answer possibly be allowing the players to be more aggressive on offense?
You can't control goal scoring. But you can control awareness to defense. This team has not shown the ability to score on a consistent basis. And tonight they are playing a team they get into a shootout (don't mean the period after OT) with.

The guy has fouir of his top 6 forwards who are enigmatic and far from consistent. And that has been a knock on Gomez, Drury and Zherdev their entire careers. Add in Dubinsky going through a sophmore slump and what choice does he have?
