What they don't have is any consistent offensive threat.

Every Stanley Cup champion that I can recall off the top of my head in the last 20+ years had one.

Also, one reason our PP sucks, and have trouble consistently sustaining an attack is because we have no real threat from the back end.
I don't know. If we're going to say DZ "can play defense" I don't think it's a stretch to say that he's also an "offensive threat." I think he's going to have a big year on offense personally and last year he was 18th league wide in terms of points by D men. Not counting Karlsson, who had a ridiculous year, DZ was only 12 points behind the top scorers at his position.
