The core issue with this team is that for years, we really only have 3 or 4 1st/2nd line capable guys. The remaining players are 3rd liners at best on teams like Chicago, LA, Detroit, etc. Plus our 4th line is incapable of providing scoring/production in comparison to tier 1 teams. Until we trade some of these and get some guys like JT Miller or Lindberg or Kristo developed enough to contribute at NHL level, we will not be scoring >2.0/game.
Plus AV's system just requires players to play more independently within a system and a lot of guys don't have the skillsets to play that way. Trades, and being smarter this summer about personnel will go long way towards next yrs team
