With such an elite defense and goaltending, a few offensive weapons to score PP goals, score against the run of play and take pressure off your defense that team is legit.
Just look at the Boston Bruins.
We already have another thread discussing if the team needs offense.
THe Boston Bruins didn't have a single 65+ point guy. And they went through some danged good defensive teams to win that Cup.
If you want to build the Bruins way, Focus your strength on two-way players in the 40-50 point range but strong at defense and puck possession, roll 3-4 lines of depth, and let the Impekkable Rinne carry you the way Thomas carried us. You have the D to make a system like that work for you. You won't be a sexy team, but you'll win some games and give yourself a chance in the postseason.
