Carbo's system??

from Timo on H/IO ::::::>

I don't think many could accurately point what system carbo's trying to have his team play. In either case it's not working all that great. One thing good coaches are able to do is to design a system that is a) enables team to compete and win b) is bought into by the team because it properly exploits available set of skills on the team. Of course, little adjustments here and there are made to address missing pieces.

I think this is a great point. A good coach designs a system to best utilize the talent he is given by the GM. Look at the difference SUTTER has made in NJ and DeBoer in FLORIDA and JULIEN in BOS and McLellan in SJ and Boudreau in WASH and Queneville in CHI... the list goes on and on....Look at the improvement of these teams when a new coach took over. Yes you can say "look at what Carbo did last year" but really was there much of a system or did the PP and some hot goaltending carry the team
