They don't play aggressively enough on most nights to make the coach's system work. Even in last night's win they lost most of the one-on-one battles early in the game. They also are one-dimensional on the breakout - mostly because of the personnel on the backline.

You are right. they don't look great even when they win. Many of their wins this year are because of stellar goaltending by Tim Thomas. When Rask is in net, even though he has played okay, they still lose. Without Thomas they are not a playoff team.
