well according to this Board: Koivu, Heatley, bouchard, Setoguchi, Suter, Backstrom at least. I don't buy it either.

I don't necessarily agree with Russo's take on it (if that's what he said). I think we're fine--we're still playing the way I expected us to for the reasons I expected--a bunch of new players, trying to find combos that work and then tweaking the system to fit those combos. Most of the offsides i see are simply linemates not knowing what the puck carrier is going to do, or guessing wrong (for example).
