The Heat are very well coached and that team does play better as a unit then the Barons do. I think the biggest issue for the Barons is what the Sportsnet panel mentioned - the D. The panel said they aren't talented enough as compared to NHL calibre D (duh) but it does affect the offense and defense. On defense obviously not getting the puck out or not being able to have a strong transition game hurt the skill players. In the offensive end though u can see that the lack of offensive IQ (outside of Schultz) results in the forwards doing it all alone. I saw numerous times that it was our forwards vs the Heats 5 man unit and that is a battle we will lose more times than not. Against worst defensive teams the Barons can have success due the skill but against good teams I think they will have to battle like they did yesterday to have any success. Will be no different at the NHL level either
