First of all, stop saying it's the coaching. The only way it's the coaching is failing here is that the team is still doing the same thing. Do you really think Tortorella hasn't been on them to move around, to take shots, to be decisive with the puck? If these things are so obvious to us, they're certainly obvious to the coaching staff. The players aren't executing and it's really on them.

Bill Clement once said that there is zero rhyme or reason to why one powerplay works the way it should while another fails to do so. I'm inclined to agree with him.

Honestly, I'd like this team to stop trying to have a powerplay system. If they just played on the powerplay the exact system and work ethic they have at even strength, they'd score a ton of goals.
