Its good to get the views of another head coach.
If Lavy does indeed change him system just a little bit to actually try to play defense then we will see Bryz return to form consistently and be worth his contract.
Our offensive system has little to do with Bryz or our defensive zone play. If the system were the only problem, All Bryz's goals against would be odd man rushes and breakaways when in reality for the most part they aren't. The offensive system is not to blame when Bryz let's in a weak short side goal or isn't fast enough to stop a redirection or isn't square to his shooters
