Offense is gone because the team is playing scared, defensive minded, passive hockey.. a reflection of the panic already starting to set in on Therrien and Bergevin.

Bergevin's miscalculations (ie Briere , Desharnais, Parros, Murray, trading Cole) have put Therrien in a difficult position of having very little margin of victory. Therrien is now forced to play tight defensive games with little offensive flair. The constant berating of PK's risker offensive instinct is the perfect example of this playing scared.

This teams identity is supposed to be smaller speedy attacking team. With players like Desharnais, Briere, Parros and Murruy we can longer call this a 'speedy' team. That fact is now starting to sink in for MT and MB.
