With Our top 3 paid offensive players (over $23 M in salary this year) only scoring 5 goals - with none on the abyssmal PP - further advancement was basically impossible. Neanderthal John and his Flintstone strategic "system" with no breakout or transition game and a non offensive strategy or sustained possesn pressure riding his favourite horses into the ground of course makes this the only logical outcome. The losses of Staal and Clowe were most likely also very major.
I am going to say what most here will not like to hear - The NYR (skilled) Europeans put on a heck of a Better playoffs than the North American contingent of the team. Brassard of course excluded. That is quite the politically incorrect statement - but certainly correct anyways. Yet I Still hear cries for more size, JAM and north south players. Good luck with that...
