No one is happy with our start. For anyone to think that is silly. We all want to win. That goes from the top down. every player, coach, Gm, owner, and fan. But this team as built is not a great team. It is an average team. Nearly everyone in the hockey world believes that Babcock is the best coach in the game. But even with him we barely made the PO's and left quickly. Now he is gone-his choice. So if he is the best, then any coach we have is less than that.
The real issue with this team is the players, not the coaches. This weekend when wewere on the PP we had Helm working as the front of net guy on the 2nd PP. think about that. A 5-10/180 guy with no shooting ability as the front of net presence. Ok blame the coach for putting him there. But who else do we have? No one. Abby is on the 1st PP, Sheahan has been tried but to date has not shown he can ahndle that job. The point is, we lack talent/ability in some very key areas. Look at our BL. Kronwall is a poor defender. Ericsson has never taken the step to become a shutdown Dman, Smith hasn't, green has never played good D. The only good defensive Dmen we have a KFQ-hurt and Dekeyser-he is till working himself into game shape after his injury. These are just some of the issues. There is only 1 way to fix these types of issues: bring in outside talent. That is on Holland. We do have pieces to do so now. So relax-I know no fun, and let's see what happens.
