The team was a mess in their own end and it was as though he had no defensive system in place at all. Not only that, but our breakout consisted of sending someone deep to the opposition's blue line, and then trying to fire a pass from in our own end to that player, which obviously failed 9 out of 10 times, with it either getting broken up or whistled for icing. Hence they tried to bring in a defensive minded coach in McKee, and I think it was the right move for the two to part ways.
I have to agree, things were getting rather predictable at the end Ö

Lakeheadís game plan for the 2006-2007 season: Look for Jeff Richards at the blueline, get the puck to him
