It's got to be the system, we have quite a bit of actual talent on this team. Which is what bugs me the most and makes losing prime years of Lundqvist hurt the most. Preach defensive responsibility all day long for all I care, it is important obviously but let these guys play. None of them grew up dreaming of blocking a shot in game 7 of the Stanley cup finals I can guarantee that.

I think that it's worn thin on most the guys, if we do get a new coach that lets them loosen up a bit we'll be in good shape as they've all learned in a defensive system. I think Nash on that team would be an even larger threat.
