It comes down to winning the individual battles, wanting it more, not much coaches can do with that.
Also the drop pass possession does not work for this group right now. The idea is to get more than one guy with speed coming into the zone, with the drop pass you have one guy(Giroux) coming up the ice with speed and no one else able to support him, which results in the defense collapsing on Giroux and a turnover. Back to basics.
