We already tried being a defensive team with Hitchcock. That didn't work at all. The teams wouldn't score enough goals to win games. We need a moderate system between the 2 extremes of attack oriented and defensive oriented and have one that dictates play in all 3 zones. Given no other choice I would rather have an attack system than a defensive one. Sometimes the best defense is a good offense.
Speaking of Weber, when we made the Forsberg trade with Nashville, could we have gotten Weber at that time instead of Ryan Parent? If that happened we would still have a #1 now. The Pronger trade might have never happened either.
