I think we need to actually have an identity as an offense. The Blackhawks know and use their plan well, counter attack with speed, walk in from the half walls when in "half court".
A few years ago we really we a team that played good defense and used the same philosophy. We were quick and had a great young d-corp that would jump in to create odd man attacks.
If our focus now is to roll 4 lines of "crash the net", then these forward shots from the outside/half walls, with no one in front, arent going to work. I miss the days when Sully, Arnott, Dumont were working "behind the net" or when Legwand and Erat's line would really skate.
Right now we have no direction, and outside of Colin Wilson, no one to actually be selfish and say "**** this dump and change after 28 seconds, or relinquish possession by rolling it around the boards, I want to score"
You know most of your Top 6 is washed up when you want Wilson, Spaling, bourque, Blum, Ellis out there to get a big goal. Legwand and Fisher particularly, have looked like they have lost a step and are terrible.
