If that's true, no wonder they did so poorly with maclean.
One of the big reasons we did so poorly with Mac was because he did not allow the defensemen to leave the blue line in the offensive zone, no pinching at all that we saw a bit under Lemaire and a ton more so, so far with DeBoer and for other teams it was a 5 on 3 in our offensive zone and they got out of the zone with ease
Multiple players have come out and said nobody knew where one another was going to be on the ice and that adds to the mayhem
Thats all in the past though and it helped this organization realize changes were necessary and here we are today, 4 wins from a Stanley Cup
