Forgot to comment about this. I whole heartedly disagree on the speed thing. Team speed is a major issue. When you're playing a team like the blackhawks and you can't do anything in the N zone, its about speed. Teams know our top 6 is slow and they capitalize on that hard. I'd venture to say we're the slowest in the league.

The Kings won last year in part of their team speed. They're not entirely super skilled on paper, but they have a roster that skates hard and doesn't give up on plays. Our team plays the slower, "smarter", more skilled game. The Red Wings of the real west. They can't get it done anymore either.
