It also results in less scoring. So if he does continue to struggle, there won't be as much goal scoring to compensate. That is the problem LA has any time their goalies hit a cold streak.
Edit: I'm also not sure we have the players suited for a system like that. Guys like Giroux, Voracek, and Simmonds look best suited for what we've got now. They aren't fantastic defensively, so stifling their offensive potential to make them play defense has potential to fail. Dale Hunter tried something similar last year, and the results were bad for a while. There's also the Briere issue...and Gagne looks a lot more reluctant to do hard defensive work along the boards than he used to.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
