the point isn't to develop offensive players, it's to win games. DL believes playing a defensive structure is the only way to get to the stanley cup.

Look, it's going to be easy to retort, "well, a lot good that's doing, blah blah". But, this season is a considered a small cog in the grand scheme. This season didn't turn up well, but look at our core player's contracts. Compare that to any other team on cap geek. This is one year, DL's goal is to build an elite team.
