It is SO obvious. The Devils were on their heels in the first. If you have a Kulemin instead of a Boychuk with Geno and Neal and you have an Iginla instead of Dupuis with Sid and Kunitz, Marty would've found himself on the bench for the second period.

And, yes, just to be clear, I'm looking at Ray Shero.
Well if it's so easy to get Kulemin and Iggy acquired and signed, by all means share your secrets with The Ray. But yah... good defensive teams often make all wingers not named Neal look pretty bad with this system. I still put it more on Bylsma than Shero, but both need to make adjustments.
