Anybody that isn't on Toews line doesn't get the puck too often and when that 2nd line does get out there for a favorable matchup, half the shift or more is wasted 1 to 4 times a game because they don't have anybody that is at least average on the dot.
I totally agree that being a puck possession team they need to be far better at the face off dot. They are far from being gritty enough to keep losing those important face offs. Winning face offs is very important for a puck possessing team.
