I don't think Lavi's system is necessarily a problem
, as long as you have good players in the defensive end. It's not a system like the Devils or Rangers play where team defense is a stress point. Without players who are instinctive, experienced and able in the defensive zone, you get the kind of breakdowns we've been seeing a lot of.
You need good defensive forwards in his system.
