Unless the players just are not listening, or are not used to the system yet, the D positioning, decisions and movement has sucked.

They actually look ok going forward, but get far fewer opportunities than they should do due to getting no service due to the outlet passes.
I would think Gus and Syvret would be able to handle outlet passing, but I missed a lot of last season so I didn't see Gus play much. How have they looked?

edit- Per the box score, the Phantoms beat Albany 4-0, with goals by Gustafsson, Couturier, Harper, and Holmstrom. 2 assists for Schenn, 2 for Couturier, 1 for Ford, and one for a defenseman I didn't know was on the team, Jeff Dimmen.
