I could go on an on, but to sum it up, it's a lack of talent. And specifically it's in the skating category. This game is won on speed. Without it you have no chance. You can have all the other skills in the world. But when you have no time or space to use them, they're useless. The old regime put a lot of emphasis on skating. This regime does not. In fact I'd say it means little to them compared to other skills. And that mistake is going to hurt us for a long time.

The secondary factor is the system. We could score more goals with more of a puck possession style. But it probably means we'd be giving up a lot more too.
