I wonder, is it really a case of not knowing how to change...or being too afraid to change?

You have a system that gets you tops in the Eastern Conference and within one win of the Stanley Cup final. Your team gets the Vezina, have other guys in the top 5 for Norris, Jack Adams, etc....

We all know the system does need to bend to accomodate the additional skill, but it's not as easy as it sounds on paper. It would take a lot of balls to just up and change out a system that had that much success.
