To me our biggest problems are we're having trouble getting out of our own zone, and then defensive zone coverage.

The forwards have often left the zone too early, putting pressure on our d to make perfect passes. This has caused our normally effective transition game to sputter. I think Carbo/Jarvis/Muller should go old school with the break out. Wingers with their buts on the boards, at the top of the face-off circle, providing a stable outlet for the d... compliment this with the centre circling back to the puck-side in case the d-man needs a second option (if the opposing forwards take-away the wingers). Old School. Fundamentals. That's what you go to when things aren't working. Do the little things right.

As a fromer minor hockey d-man at a rec-level, I feel I'm qualified to say it's the forwards fault.
