I don't see this team being able to just dominate teams in the postseason based on talent alone, constantly pushing the pace. Agree/disagree with it the goal is to win some games and rounds.
It may not make the team a true elite "contender" but those IMO are the three elements they need to get clicking to have a respectable year. Not saying its the "best strategy" but it's what I see the goal being.
Which is why I lament the power play so. The team was a strong defensive team, with a great forecheck and physical presence that wore down the opposition. It's the awful PP that was the problem.
