Two things can be done:
1 - A coach can be brought in who can use the players skills and speed to the team's advantage. For example look at what a coaching change did to Washington last year, Boudreau is using his players and their skills properly and their team has been outstanding ever since.
2 - The roster gets blown up and Gainey brings in grittier defensive players that would buy into Carbonneau's "system"
If you ask me option 1 would be a lot easier to implement and we wouldn't have to worry about blowing this season up.
Montreal definitely needs a new system. Zero forecheck, and the trap isn't working. The teams just dump and beat us to the loose pucks.
