Wait, you mean what we saw in the post-season was an offence-oriented team?? Mike, did you ever think that maybe the guys aren't skilled enough to play that way? Except in the regular season against patsies in the NW division? We don't exactly have a roster full of Malkins ....

How can Gillis still believe his team is a skill team?

ďI still believe offence is a critical part of the National Hockey League,Ē he said. ďIím not going to change from that. Thereís success that goes in cycles and, perhaps, we were on the wrong side of the cycle this season. But it isnít reserved to just us.Ē
