Not enough offense.....not enough defense.....poor goaltending.Questionable coaching or front office moves. A lot of things can go poorly in the NHL, but there's one goal: To be in the playoffs with a chance to win the Cup. 7 of the last 8 years we've done that. We've been in a playoff hunt down to the wire every year since 2004. Think about that. This organization is doing enough things right to consistently succeed for nearly a decade. And before that we were still in expansion status. So, remembering that we're known as the "model expansion franchise", one could say we've been successful every single season.
Yeah our offense is weak sometimes through the years but we get where we have a chance at the Cup year in and year out because (among other things) we emphasize areas like....you know....defense, which takes away from a lot of offensive numbers. We still usually win more times than not because we have an identity. We could lack in offense, defense, coaching, etc and fans would eventually have enough of said problem and demand changes.
Different problems, same fan reaction.
But for the sake of being negative, yeah our offense blows right now.
