And after April 2010 was the start of changing things. Sure Boudreau was still here but he had already tweaked the system to dial back the pressure a bit in an effort to make it more defensively responsible. Trying to play 'the right way' was the beginning of the end...
He tweaked the system in about December of 2010 because no one excepting Semin could score anymore. Whether defenses adapted or everyone forgot how to play hockey is debatable. What isn't debatable is that the fun and gun didn't work anymore.
