Can't agree more. Going out of position to make hits and pinching in when he shouldn't have been the major problems I've seen. Trying to make the big hit is the bigger problem, IMO, as it represents a fundamental shift in the way he normally plays. I think pinching in on offense has been a problem with the entire D corps, and may be more of a coaching issue.

That and the whole conditioning issue. Petro and the rest of the team will be fine.
