TMac blows. This team is good enough to go over .500 with *no* coach. A good coach would have this team way over the top.
Lousy PP that continues to utilize the umbrella scheme and continues to produce zilch.
A bizarre reluctance to have allstar forwards attack the slot vs passing back to offensively-stunted D.
Relies on grinding, percentage style hockey even though the team is loaded with talent up front.
Lousy PK scheme that cost plenty of games before he realized it wasn't a player execution issue but tactical issue.
Lousy offensive scheme that makes mediocre goalies look like gods.
Poor game clock and situation management.
Poor player TOI management.
Poor at making tactical changes between periods and between games.
Puts blame on player execution while not recognizing that the tactical plan can be the issue as well.
3 years, 3 very different teams and pretty much the same issues every year. JT and Heatley have changed their game, they got a true scoring 3rd line, added more scoring potential on the blueline, etc. and yet they're still making mediocre goalies look like gods by pounding a million worthless shots on goal and still can't score on the PP or 5-on-5 vs the better teams.
