Execution. Practice. Coaching.
Lack of hustle, motivation, and focus could also be blamed on the players. NHL players shouldn't need some master motivator to get them ready to play a full sixty minutes a night. I don't buy that being Lavy's fault for a second. If you want to fire him because of the downfalls of his system and the personnel not being suited to it, then fine. But let's not act like Lavy should have to turn into Herb Brooks before the Soviet game every night just to get these guys to play. Focus, energy, and motivation is all about how guys prepare themselves leading up to game time.
