The Rangers and Devils in particular really strangle the life out of us in our own zone.
I have no idea. The forwards never support each other, either. So it's the puck carrier versus the whole opposition.

I'm tired of watching the D give the puck to some forward, then watching that forward skate up the boards into 2-3 defenders. It happens a whole lot. The breakout scheme is awful.

Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
