Man, I don't know how Ray Shero can't see this is a problem that only he can fix. Because Bylsma won't make adjustments.
Exactly. It's 100% on Bylsma at the moment. This is how he's teaching his defense to play. He wants them to be "aggressive" yet completely ignores the fact that on more than a few occasions, they leave guys completely uncovered because of this.
Obviously his defensive system isn't working. It may work from time to time, but that's more of an anomaly than anything else.
