With Trotz and his crew back again, one has to wonder:
1) Will we see the same crappy powerplay....again? Will it ever get past the cross ice pass?
2) Are we doomed to seeing the same passive defensive system, where we let offenses enter our zone with speed, rather than slowing them down/forcing the puck deep at the blueline?
3) Are the Holmstrom's of the league always going to be given the crease for free?
WOW!! I was hoping these thoughts were going through somebody's mind other than me while watching the games. I think it was Zanon that said in an interview that "we're going to let Holmstrom do his thing and leave him alone so we don't have another body there screening Ellis". My brother (tulsytrid) and I looked at each other in disbelief that he had just said that although during the game it seemed that way. On your second point, Trotz is always knocking the younger players on "Defensive" responsibilities and yet we give up about 30 shots on net per game, and continue to let them gain the zone, basically giving them a free shot. It's unbelievable!!! Great Post!
