Wish they could combine man to man with at least a semi-competent offensive style. We don't have the hockey IQ for zone aside from Alzner.
Ugh you're kidding me right. It's impossible to play man to man with an offensive attack! It's not too hard to realize. The Caps were in their one zone 75% of the game chasing the puck. And once they did get the puck back, there were hardly ever any breakout options because everyone was covering their guys and all over the place, being told not to think 1 bit about offense.

Man to man is an awful system. Why do you think no other team in the NHL uses it? It's completely one dimensional and allows no room for offense. And it's not good defense, it's just deciding not to play offense.
