Less Briere and no Jagr are probably factors, but not that big. The talent on offense has been fine (#1 PP in the league) but the problem is the lack of a good transition game (lousy 5 on 5). Thus the big need for PMD. It's hard to score goals when you struggle to get the puck past your own blue line.
