Sound familiar? The only way this team wins is it if brings its lunch pail to work every night and wins the battles in the tough areas of the ice. I think Vigneault got a rude awakening when it comes to personnel, and it became apparent over the first 5 games that opening things up is not an option.
I think that is the way any team wins. You can infuse as much skill as you want, if you aren't winning the battles in hard areas, you will rarely win.

They looked faster and better than at pretty much any point last year.
