The system of using "third man high" becomes a necessity for the way this team is currently constructed.
Torts original system matched with this team was "death". The 7-1 start may have initially fooled everyone into believing different.
The 7-1 start was the result of Tort's system and no video of the team playing the system for other teams to watch/review and adjust to. Like I said during our win streak, once teams figure out the system and adjust it's going to shut down.
They close off the sideboards and we can not effectively move the puck up. The other teams learned where our for-checkers go in and adjust for it. It's a great system but I think it needs to be mixed into another system in a single game so the other team isn't always anticipating where our players are going so quickly...
