The problem isn't Oates, its the players. Oates didn't give up that weak ass 5 hole goal to Dupuis, or somehow give up a breakaway on a 2 on 2, or take stupid penalties. That's on the players.

When they actually play hard you can see its a very effective system. The only problem i have with it is that they need to keep the dumps away from the goalie. Way too many dump ins are landing on the opposing goalies stick.

Honestly I wouldn't be surprised to see them completely turn it around, as there have been extended glimpses of this being a really good team just about every single game, but I do think they should go out and trade for some offensive help (Setoguchi and Goligoski would be great).
