There's a few different reasons why we cannot score. We have been getting enough opportunities, just some players aren't ready to finish(Coyle in particular) and others aren't finishing. Speed is an issue with this team, but that's not necessarily why I'd say we're not scoring. Puck management/decision making is a much bigger problem. Too often do we fail to get the puck in a position to actually fore-check, too often do we get hemmed in our own zone and just chip to center, not allowing the D to change and stay fresh. Not enough puck support in many situations as well. Like Yeo said awhile ago, these players are giving eachother their problems.
We're far too careless with the puck and its the big reason why people are questioning Yeo as a coach. Now, every coach has an expiry date but if the players want to quit on another player's coach with no previous experience, give them a damn hothead with experience. Show them what its like playing for someone not afraid to bench them or call them out to the media.
