Its also stupidly frustrasting because we didn't seem to have any real system play at all. Whole team is PP specialists and somehow our PP sucks.
Huberdeau, Schiefele, Ritchie, McNiel, Lipon and Danault all just seemed lost all tournament long. We had Murphy eating up minutes all tournament long despite Reilly just looking better all around.
We lacked physicality, and we lacked a strong forcheck. We seemed to just make poor choices with the puck all tournament long. I have to think that our coaching staff failed.
I just flat out embarrassed. Third was better, but just... we needed to work harder. Not playing 60 minutes not really acceptable.
You're exaggerating. "All tournament long"? No. They played perfect against Russia but the whole team choked in the game that mattered the most.
