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).
Russo may have never said it exactly but he basically says the Wild dump but don't chase. To me that implies lack of effort. I don't see lack of effort myself. I agree that lack of chemistry is an issue but I don't see the value in Yeo's system. I'm a Wild fan first and if Yeo turns it around and this team owns I'll be the first to cheer them on. I just don't see it.
