I think most know the players played like garbage for 2/3 of the Toronto game and floated through this game so he isnt to blame. I dont mind moen on the first line he has been good so far this year, cole was a bum last night ....so weak on the puck.
Seems like in games we outshoot people we get "habbed" if you want to call it that in the fact that we give up way more quality chances while giving up significantly less shots.
He eased Eller into the lineup, coming off an injury.
As the game went on Eller got more responsibility and Darche got less (at even strength).
That doesn't sound like bad coaching to me.
I put the blame for the loss last night solely on the players. I'm sure JM isn't telling Erik Cole to fail 4 times at clearing the puck from his own end.
I'm sure JM isn't telling the team to take stupid undisciplined penalties in the first period.
I'm sure JM isn't telling the forwards to not back check and pick up David Moss as the trailer.
The coach can only be as good as the players on the ice... and last night, the players on the ice stunk.
