DGMW , Torts has instilled a certain brand of discipline and accountability that has led us to the top teams through the first half but it is offensively stifling and now past the half way mark the NYR are more concerned with nit making a bad play and content to chip it deep and grind . The patience game is all well and good if your top 6 are scoring timely goals . Now that the wells run dry how is that working out ?
I don't think our players have the patience to PLAY the patience game, at this point, you know? We start smacking shots away without a clean grip on the puck, or dump and chase and then kick it out to the D who sends it back in. It can get ridiculous.
