To build on my last post, especially regarding the power play; we need someone to be selfish. To me, the defining identity of the "dark years" was the amount of passing and reluctance to step on anyone else's toes. Maybe too much talent makes everyone deferential. Teams need the "alpha". Selfishness (maybe not the perfect word) is why Bure was so successful here even when others around him (and they were exceptionally talented too) struggled to score.

I'd rather see us have predictable triggermen than predictable turnovers trying to make the perfect pass. You have the puck, you have a good look, take it. Don't perpetually look for perfect.
