For example, both wingers in the defensive zone were NOT covering their point men, instead they were attracted to the puck thus leaving chicago's defensemen completely open on the blue line to recieve passes and make plays. Down low in the corners the center man was not supporting his defenseman, only watching.
Do you guys think Lindy Ruff could get these boys to play better defensive hockey in their zone?
Yes, but the chance of Ruff coaching this team is about 1% because he doesn't already have ties to the organization and the Avs seem to like the whole promote from within philosophy
