He's doing the exact same thing this year, rolling all his lines in order, one after the other... never pulling the goalie... never ask for a timeout... etc...
Carbonneau is no better - no worse than last season...
difference is, we don't have a PP
a goal a game now...
we don't have a PP that will give us 3 goals in 10 minutes to kill any momentum the opponent have... we don't have a PP to get us win after win even when we're playing like sh**... we do not have a PP that instill fear (of losing) in the opponent's mind...
By the end of the season last year, every single team we faced knew that even if they played a perfect game, they could still lose to us if taking two or three penalty in a game...
This year, opposing players can do whatever they want, they have nothing to fear... taking two minutes ? who cares, Habs won't score anyway...
Carbs and his A have no choices now, their weapon is gone, they HAVE TO adjust... they make the necessary adjustment and we'll go back to winning on a regular basis, they dont and we'll have to fight for a playoff spot... as simple as that.
