A question: They also gave up a ton of D zone time when they were still playing zone. So what was the cause then? If it's personnel, then why is that not the reason now. If this were a new problem, it would make more sense to blame man to man, but as it is a chronic long-term problem, I'm not sure that's the whole story.
