Because the new guys are all capable to put up good numbers under a defensive style. Kovalev under Martin wouldn't even get 60 points. Tanguay asked to leave Calgary because he didn't do well under Keenan's conservative style. The only thing Koivu has over Gomez is the price tag...
Actually Keenan has more of an up tempo forechecking style. A lack of defensive structure was their problem and that is what Sutter will bring. But I get your point. I think Tangs' problem in Calgary was that he didn't fit with their team commitement and the physical aspect.
