So they let Wiz walk, tell Subban to be more responsible (take less chances) and all this without knowing what Markov's injury was really about.
What is the gameplan here? JM likes a hard forechecking team, but again he doesn't have the size up front to carry this out. Come playoff time, we are beatup and worn out and the blueline is hobbling into the post-season.
Does anyone understand what the team philosophy is here?
I don't. They don't even know how to work the refs when, apart from Subban they're really built to do that. In fact they're the worst team at manipulating the calls that maybe I've ever seen. OT I know, but it speaks to their lack of a cohesive team philosophy to me.
