What on earth compelled him to think that he needed to save his timeout throughout the four-goal meltdown streak, so that his guys could be fresh for a D-zone faceoff down by two in the last minute?
And why leave Backs in for four? He was clearly shaky and the team needed a message sent.
Presumably he'll parrot the same crap about liking the way they responded, make excuses about what a good opponent they played. And then he won't really change anything meaningful at all or make any kind of a statement despite having a very rare opportunity to have multiple practices in a row.
Now I see where the team gets their "just sit and watch" mentality on the dump-and-chase.
Yeo's in game behavior really is mystifying. Backs should have been pulled after two, or at the very least after three. Or even after the fourth goal just to send a damned message. Time out should have been called after the 2nd goal to calm the team down and get them off their heels and skating forward again. We got our goal and then spent the whole rest of that period bottled up in our own damned zone. We needed a jolt, and he completely failed to deliver again.
I am just astounded at how inept Yeo seems this year at times.
