A healthier #1 on D would have helped, but even if that was Timmo, he's only on the ice for 24-28 min at most. The system is still too much race up and down the ice to try and score, and too many players neglecting to even attempt playing any sort of defense.

The system has to change. The Kings played a defense first system and it won them a cup. Same thing with the Bruins.
