I've been most disappointed in Pitkanen, given that I'm generally a fan of his, because he appears to be *so* out of sync with the 3 forwards since his return. Too often, he seems to be pushing ahead before the forwards have set themselves up. On other occasions, like maybe during a line-change, he seems to be attempting to start a push while he and McBain are standing flat-footed near the faceoff dots. Just out of sync.
The 3 words I would use to describe our team at present. Some good posts in here about role confusion et al. But it was painfully obvious Tuesday night that we still don't know where we need to be - at the times we need to be there. We never get to the loose puck, we don't work hard enough in the corners, and never in right spot for the garbage goals.

I'm not sure its lack of effort (well in the 3rd they let down and didn't focus) as much as misplaced effort.
