-Required a goalie in top form to have some measure of success
-Shuned all offensive creativity and imagination
-Prioritized skilless vets who knew their role and followed the system over better players.

The most painful anti-hockey aspect of all was watching the Habs protect a 2 goal deficit in the third period, just hoping a couple of fluke counter-attacks might get us back in so we can make it to overtime. Sytem Grade: F.
Thank you
