- D-zone coverage ... again it's been terrible for four straight games
- Shots on goal/offense ... zero creativity out there, no shots, no effort to get open. It's terrible
- Bottom lines ... useless lately
- Goaltending ... substandard at best
We play too much on the boards, and we aren't a creative team behind the net. But that is our system, we play like that so we can minimize odd man rushes, and force the opposing man D to bring the puck 200 feet.

However, its absolutely killer when teams tighten up down the stretch. If we had a team of skilled power forwards though, we would be nasty. Unfortunately our skill guys aren't that big.
