Exactly. The more this roster has been built with players for Lavy's pond hockey, the worse we do in the playoffs. The sweep by Boston was equally embarrassing as the Devil series this year.
Stevens was a defensive coach, and players under him were taught and played that way. In comes Lavy, personnel changes, a "never mind that defensive stuff" style and presto, we can't win low scoring, tight checking, defensive playoff hockey.
Yeah the aberration happened in Carolina, but there's a reason defense carries the day 99% of the time. History has proved that.
