Lets be fair here. The Preds are a defense-first team. Our top six have to back check and have a defensive conscience. That means their offensive stats might not match up with the top six of offense-first teams - say Tampa. For several years this formulation worked well. It didn't last year but we don't know whether that was a injury influenced anomaly or a reflection of a more permanent downward spiral.

I do think many teams are going to be influenced by the Blackhawk formulation - some defense - but more speedy offensive skill.
