The Kings are not hard to defend and the play after the olympics shows it. Teams have figured it out and Murray will not adapt.
I didn't say teams dump it 90% of the time, I said that when you dump it in it is dictated by the other team 90% of the time, i.e. they almost always force you to do it.
Losing the battles is a completely different thing, and that's what's killing the Kings right now, IMO. Before, teams would force us to dump it and we would win the puck, cycle a bit, and get some good chances. Now, there's no fight and they just give it up. It doesn't have so much to do with Murray as it does with the team. It worked at the beginning of the season because the players
the puck. Now it seems as if they think its poisonous or something.
