Although I really cant say that for Richter as much.

The only answer I really have any faith in is that they rarely draft high scoring forwards, before the cap they were horrendous at money management and talent evaluation.

They also never finish low enough to grab those young guns and stockpile them.
I always get confused when anyone says we have a "defense first" system. I always think it looks like we are defense first because we can't score.
