Bylsma putting Kennedy and Cooke on their off-wings for the Jets game didn't help in that regard. It's much harder to get the puck out of your own end when a player is on their off-wing, and it showed tonight.
I'm so tired of this "north" ****. I've played hockey my whole life and have never heard a coach yell "go north". The focus needs to be more on puck support and less long stretch passes. The cross ice passes have been a problem, but so has this stretch bull **** every time we get the puck.
