BUT our main problem was our pseudo system. We generally weren't able to generate speed from our own zone. That didn't help for sure.

My opinion anyway.
Bonk isn't on our top 3 lines, first. Second, Kovy isn't a slow skater, he's just a floater. Either way I'd like to get rid of him (bash on fanboys). Our top 2 lines are composed of fairly speedy skaters other than Ribs and to a certain degree Ryder which are imo very average and not slow skaters.
