I think the system needs to adapt some. Every line plays dump and chase and while our guys aren't elite offensively, some of our guys have the ability to stick handle. Why not use that to our advantage? Injuries have hurt us this year but we've been without guys throughout the season and had good stretches with many of them out so I don't fully buy the injury excuse. We can say we'd be a better team with Lombardi for the bulk of the season but we really have no idea because he played a game and a half.

I think Trotz and Poile do well with what they're allowed to do but I think it's shortsighted to think that another coach couldn't come in here and do the same, if not better job. I'm not saying it's a guarantee but I think the mystique of Trotz is a little overrated in my book.
