What those players have in common is that they struggle with system hockey. They're thriving in more offensive systems on teams that aren't doing as well. What's there not to get about this?

Look at our roster. There's a good amount of skill, but it's mostly big bodies that can cycle (with the elite players like Kopitar, Doughty, that can exhibit creativity within it). Teddy didn't show the ability to succeed in those situations.

This team is built for the playoffs. Soft players need not apply (though I will say Moulson didn't get a fair shake).
