Agree completely. We weren't scoring and he didn't bring Ryder back in. Not sure it would have made a difference, but Ryder has a good shot and it was worth a try for sure. Streit was terrible for most of the playoffs. In my opinion he was a major reason the PP wasn't working. Also, how many times did he turn or the puck or shoot it into a guys shins that lead to a breakaway or 2 on 1. Brisbois played waay better than him on the PP and should have replaced him on the #1 unit.
I also would have considered bringing in Grabovski versus the Flyers. The series wasn't anything near as physical as the Boston series and his speed could have caused some serious breakdowns by the Flyer D.
Ah well, I honestly didn't think the Habs would win it this year, and the lessons learned in the playoffs will pay off in the future.
