I seriously don't think this team would be all that better with Shattenkirk on the top pairing with a bunch of 3rd pairing guys, as opposed to EJ with a bunch of 3rd pairing guys, and who knows what Stewart would look like given his inconsistency.

They have a problem with their system and coaching keeping them focused and playing up to their capability, rather than emotional and capable multiple mental errors, and going on long losing streaks.

They have a problem with each individual player's self motivation, and keeping themselves focuses without having the coaching staff work their ass off to keep them on point.

They'd have a problem with personel if they had Shatty and not EJ, because they'd have no real legit top pairing capable two way guy. It'd just be Shatty as an offensive guy hoping he doesn't get in too much trouble.

I'm pretty confident this team would not be that much better with Shatty and Stewart and without EJ. If anything they'd be more offensively one dimensional, which is what the problem is with this team from a a team perspective. Not the D, because they're obviously not talented enough, but from a team game, it's their achilles heel, and thankfully Jiggy was man enough to come out and put emphasis on that and the other weaknesses of this team.
