Do you honestly think that you see **** that Peter Laviolette, professional NHL coach, doesn't. Seriously? Do we think we're that smart or he's that dumb? The issue isn't an inability on his part to recognize proper tactical adjustments. If this were the case he wouldn't have such a stellar record of this team scoring after his time outs.

The issue is that he can't make on ice decisions and the forwards are young. The personnel still has to execute his system with good judgement. When you're playing as aggressive a system as Laviolette's, it really puts a lot of responsibility on the players to make the correct decisions in some close situations on the ice.

Experienced players flourish when you hand them that much freedom. Young players press a lot, and end up scoring and allowing a lot of goals. Let the players get a little more experienced with in his system. Once that happens you're going to see them better able to implement on the fly coaching changes, and make some of their own moment-to-moment adjustments before Laviolette even has to say anything.
