Did you even read the article? Both Parise and Koivu stated that it was a player issue.

I'm not sure how you could put this even close to 100% on Yeo. The players aren't doing their jobs, and Yeo can't be on the ice making them do it. He's job is to make sure they understand what they're suppose to to do, where they're suppose to be. No coach can force players to chase the puck or forecheck. If there's a group of guys who aren't doing it all the time, how exactly is Yeo suppose to force them to do it?
