Can anyone explain then why they suddenly seemed to have reverted back to their lacksadical and unstructured play?
I doubt BB told them to loaf it and just skate aimlessly around. Perhaps the players are a bigger part of the problem than some here are willing to admit.
Just as a disclaimer, I wanted BB gone at the end of the year too, but I can't see this recent slide being solely his fault. Perhaps he had less of a hand in the success at the beginning of the year too, but the players need to be held accountable too.
Long season in a league where the best team usually wins only a little over 50 games. Compare that to the NBA where the teams with the best record usually win over 60. In fact over the last 2 years the NBA has produced 21 teams that have won 50 or more games. NHL has produced 4 in that same time span.
