Losing Handzus, Smyth and Simmonds was bad for the system Terry Murray was running so when the Kings tried to run the same system with smaller players, they were getting even worse results. The offense went from bad to worse. I don't think a net presence is the solution to the problem. The problem is much bigger than that. You need personnel who can score and a system that embraces a faster pace and more emphasis on scoring and offensive creativity. I don't even know who the top offense is in the league is but I doubt they are scoring a lot because they have somebody screening the goalie at all times. Sometimes? Maybe. But my guess is the best offensive teams in the league have superior offensive talent than the Kings and there is more of an emphasis on offense in their system.
