Or maybe he peaked because he naturally got better, as most players do after several years in the NHL?
When you have a goaltender like Henrik you help him out by scoring goals and letting him do what he does best. You don't employ a 6 goalie system.
Look at the Kings and Blackhawks. They have solid defenses but they also focus on attacking offensively. We didn't have that. There would constantly be shooting clinics in our own zone. That happened during our ECF run too. Don't try and excuse Torts for that. His system promoted collapsing and playing defense. That's plain wrong. No other successful team does that.
