On having a solid defense.

Seems to me that the most potent offensive teams did not last very long in this season's playoffs. Penguins embarrassed by another offensive team--the Flyers who were then quickly dispatched by the Devils. Vancouver, Boston, Chicago, San Jose all bit the dust in the first round.

What's left--New Jersey, Phoenix, Los Angeles and either of the Rangers/Caps and the major theme here seems to be that good defense trumps great offense as even Ovechkin takes second place to his team's reliance on solid defensive play.

Bringing this up because I know that a lot of posters here think we just don't score enough but scoring enough really comes down to scoring one more than your opposition on any given night.

the key though is that no one wants to add offense at the expense of our defense and become a run and gun team...they want to improve the offense on top of continuing to be just as good defensively lol

I'm not sure Boston should be lumped as a purely offensive team. Vancouver to a smaller extent. There are very few pure offensive teams left.

Let's just say teams that our considered to have better offenses than the Rangers. The most dangerous offenses are all gone.
