The way good teams coach offense is becoming far more reliant on set plays. Meanwhile Canucks, outside of the Sedins who create their own set plays, are still throwing players out there and letting them cycle while hoping the other team makes a mistake. You just can't expect to break down the structured defense and goaltending in today's hockey through brute force, at least not consistently enough.
