It's nearly impossible to employ a strategy that defends against everything all the time. I think the Rangers did a damn good job of coming close. Everyone always whines about fixing things with zero thought given to what leaks doing so will open up.
Well said. Far too many people fail to acknowledge the give and take nature of the game. Like how AV will enhance the offense, cover the points, and everything else that worked will remain the same.

These are the same folks that don't criticize Sather despite year and year of plugging up one hole just have to have 2 others open.
