Chemistry can take years to develop, it's why the dynasty teams were dynasties. They were together for years, it doesn't just happen and it certainly won't happen with consistency in just 20 games. Every line and every d-pairing from last season has changed. Throw in no training camp, minimal practice time and not many of these guys playing anywhere over the lockout and you are going to see struggles. Most people here said they were expecting a playoff birth yet so many of you complaining in here act like they are disappointing because they aren't the best team in the league. They are one point out of a playoff birth and while they are having some road struggles, they are 6-2 at home.
Furthermore, not every team needs to be yelled at and just because a coach is yelling or "showing fire" does not mean that he is going to reach his players that way. In fact many coach can lose their players by screaming at them. We have no earthly clue what goes on behind closed doors but just because he isn't screaming on the bench, doesn't mean they aren't getting earfuls in the locker room. Some coaches prefer their players and leaders to handle things with the team during games. The sky is not falling and panic is not needed and whether you get sick of it or not, patience is the right thing needed here.
