Perhaps the issue is the team just needs more time to gel and bond. I didn't expect them to do as well as in the first half, and the lock out hurt them. Some teams are far more loaded due to the lock out. Really only one player sitting on their roster would have been a consistent contributor in the Blues line up....Ian Cole.

Another thing to consider, it's one thing to get 25-32 year old men getting paid to buy into a system and another to get younger kids to buy into a system, when they are pressing to prove that they belong and are wanting to move to the next level. Everyone seems to forget your mistakes and defensive inefficiencies, when you score goals and put up points. I just think they are pressing and seem to be a bit overmatched.
