Where do I say I hate Hitchcock?
I didn't even say I hate Murray. I don't hate those two at all. I just don't like their defense first system cause I think it won't go well with the roster we have. The point I was making is a defense first system doesn't mean we will win it all either. Murray and Hitchcock didn't win the Cup here. They tried and it didn't work. Any system can win, but you need to gear a system that goes with the roster.
Right now the Flyers roster is totally out of whack. Half of the d-men are defensive stay at home types who can't really skate. No d-man outside of Kimmo can really move the puck. Lavi's system emphasizes skating and none of the d-men we have can really do that outside of Coburn and he handles the puck like he is holding a hot rod.
