If we keep getting our a**es handed to us in the second round each year it will happen sooner than you think. I don't mind Lavy as the coach if he makes a stronger commitment to defense first instead of this pond hockey.

Yes he was. If Lavy wont change his system to stress more defense first, any defensive minded coach will do.

WOW, Lavy got one round further than Stevens did here, and Lavy did it with Stevens players. Since the lucky run to the finals, two embarrassing second round exits and an 0-13 record when scoring less than four goals.

This team is not built and does not play a style to consistently have deep playoff runs. Helen Keller and Stevie Wonder could see it.

No. Only if he was severely out coached like Lavy was in the 2nd round, and/or was unwilling to bend when it comes to changing the way we play to achieve more success.
