The team looked confused/lost and was mistake prone all season long. To me they looked ill prepared and/or his system was crap (probably a bit of both). This team imo is way better then Blashill was able yo get them to play. I think the team is younger with more talent then we have seen in a while yet the power play that was near league best last season sucked gigantic blue veiny beach balls. Face offs? what are those? Clearly NOT something that was practiced. How about CLEARING THE ZONE? Not practiced... What was practiced (and used a zillion times a game) was the lame zone entry of forwards skate puck to blue line then stop, pass back to defenseman and wait for him to carry it in.... SO STUPID!!! With all the speed this team has dump and chase for Pete's sake. Let those young speedy kids retrieve them pucks. This should have been the season Pav, Z and Kronwall down shifted to get them a break rather then expect they produce like they were 25 again.
Worst of all we lost out on the chance for some really good coaches for this failed experiment.
Can I start the bring back Dave Lewis thread now?
