And yes, towards the end of SSS, you could see the picture of Varnakov's team. However, I'm not prepared to say that Varnakov's strategy is proven until we see it work consistently. This has not happened yet.
When his strategy works - it's great.
When it fails, it ugly hockey to watch. Trap, no creativity and losing looks pretty bad.
True. In some games, the offense was almost nonexistent. To be successful, they will have to have the kind of balance between defense and offense that they showed the final game.
