This team is not riding the back of Subban to win them games, they're riding the back of a stifling defensive system that earned Charlie Graham first star honours the other night. You could dress Jordan Subban in net and they'd still probably win the game. As for defense, this team is clearly NOT very deep at that position once you pass Jordan and Austin. Cardwell is also good but more so in an offensive role. The system is winning them games, that's why George sticks with it year in, year out. So bringing in new players to try and increase goal production while playing the same stifling defensive style just won't work. It's going to require a rethink on Coaching style and is probably why some have been calling for a coaching change for years. Unfortunately nothing will probably change so this will be the same old, same old for the foreseeable future.
