How come we can't run an effective defensive system without collapsing our forwards down to block every shot?

Don't other teams run effective defenses with lesser defenseman and still have offensive systems that can put points on the board?

I don't get it.

Defensemen is the strength of our roster. We shouldn't need a system that helps the defensemen out to win.

We should be able to win with an offensive system because the defensemen are good enough on their own.
McDonagh and Staal are great defensively. Girardi is good. The rest are average and none of them are offensively gifted.

The envy of the league this ain't. They are a good group but not more.
