Special teams has to be fixed

Looking at the first 3 games, its clear we've got some issues with special teams, and thats probably the understatement of the year....

During 5 v 5 play, the flyers are actually even (2 GF vs 2 GA), but weve been getting blown out of the water whenever we get a man down or man up.


Consider this:

We have given up 10 goals thus far


6 on the power play
2 empty nets
2 5 v 5
and 1 penalty shot (on our PP lol)

Empty nets dont really count, so 6/8 goals we have given up have been when were down a man, at the same time our PP has scored 1/15 times, which is no better than our PK.

PK, i think will come eventually, but our PP is very, very, very predictable. All teams have to do is just pressure Giroux along the half boards and we turn the puck over. Lavi has to come up with something else or we are going to get embarrassed game after game. I dont think its a problem with the players as much as the system itself. Thoughts?
