I don't think we have a consistent problem. We have a ton of single problems. My current thought (hope?) is that Josi has in fact stabilized the pairings. We need to see 5-10 games but it could be problem solved.
Still lots of smaller mistakes to correct. Most could be solved by moving our feet more, like getting some forward support for the D on the breakouts.
In short, I think we are stuck with a young streaky team so I have hopes that the streak will break back the other way.
Joe, don't give up!!!
The difference is that our young guys don't balance out their mistakes that lead to goals with goals of our own. Muller may play a great game and "create a lot of energy" out there, but he doesn't score. Same for the rest of the muckers out there.
Our youngsters aren't the next Eberle, Nuge, and Kane.
