For those saying we don't have good forwards on the roster, you are flat out wrong.
When you look at our forwards you have to think that we would be scoring alot of goals. Something is going wrong this year because we have the same team but hypothetically much better with additions. Hard not to blame coaching. Can't score? Glendenning gets more time on ice than Datsyuk, Larkin, AA, tatar, Nyquist some nights. Down by 1 goal last game with a minute left? Glendenning is on the ice.
Nyquist played one of his hardest games of the season the other night in Toronto, babs is still getting him to play hard and he lives 6 hours away.
Blashill has inherited the win by 1 goal philosophy from Babs, but is nowhere near as good at executing it. The D gets 20 turnovers a game and our PP is the worst I've ever seen. We have 1 defenceman who can make a stretch pass and we try it every time we have the puck. Icing or turnover. We finally get a cycle going in the offensive zone and dekeyser quincey or ericsson lob it on net the second they touch the puck and ruin momentum. All things I notice as a man who doesn't play hockey.
All of our forwards are 70% focused on playing defence. We have the wrong philosophy for our team, we need to open it up more and take chances; we have one of the fastest teams in the NH and arugably the most athletic goaltender.
