There's no contesting that, for sure. At the same time, I think those two have all they can manage right now.

Increase the offensive strain by swapping Vinnie for Parenteau. Increase it further by replacing Kotalik with a ten-games-each rotation of Grachev/Dupont/Weise. Increase it further by slicing the ice time of Dubinsky and Callahan from 19:00 to 17:00.

Now jack up the defensive strain by replacing Girardi with Sauer and Higgins with Byers. Go further by benching Redden and Rozsival for ten games each, replacing them with Heikkinen or Sanguinetti.

Do this and I think the heroics of Lundqvist and Gaborik collapse. Lundqvist is good enough to keep you in the game every night, but he's not so good that he can steal games night in and out. Same with Gaborik.
