They're chasing the puck all the time and not catching up. Forwards come unimpeded into the zone and throw the puck around like the Harlem Globetrotters. Not sure what the fix is. Couple of big, physical defencemen maybe. Puck moving defencemen don't do you any good if you can't get the puck. Not an indictment of Troy by any means, except that the whole league's talent level seems to have gotten that much better and the Tommies have not kept up.
There are ways to slow more talented teams down, and most coaches who know the talent isint there for a track meet need to slow it down from the neutral zone in. Whats the scheme of their dzone so they dont get killed? If I'm the coach of a team of a team without talent (like I am) I'm making more of an effort to winning hockey games 3-2, 2-1 and 1-0 with a solid goaltender and solid defensive team play.
