So you think they changed their style to compensate for Marty's flaws? I'm wondering how their great offense has become so bad so suddenly. I really liked their style when they were winning. It was aggressive and still responsible defensively. Not sure what happened. Your theory could be right.

Seriouly though, whenever you loose a PO series, its like you spend the comming 12 month to correct what you did wrong in that series. Atleast in a normal situation -- like if we don't change 50% of the roster this summer.
With Marty back NJD is playing a no-misstake trap game again to cover for his flaws. If we loose that series it will be because we made misstakes. I sure as heck dont want spend 12 month trying to make sure we don't make misstakes.
I think our big challenge ahead will be to handle the AO's and Malkin's, the Tavares and co's. So from that point of view I wouldn't mind playing Washington. They also have a goalie issues.
