Not the thread for this, and I'd like to address Sather's BS separately, but the desire of many of us to see a new system is not driven by some delusion that the team can score 4-5 goals every night. It's about reducing stress and pressure on the defenseman. It's about letting our all world goalie see the puck and do his job. It's about letting offensive minded players make plays and be confident, so when that big goal or PP goal is needed, it doesn't take a miracle to get it. It's about modernizing the approach in an effort to take the next step. And yeah, it's about entertainment, for me at least.

Sather is simply trying to save face here, it's pretty obvious. But what should we expect from him? Honesty? You mean that hallmark of American business culture?
