A ton of these factors are being ignored so that the headcoach could be portrayed as an idiot who plays stone-age hockey. Its just not accurate.
If you watch some of the best teams in the league, theres games they'll be forced to dump and chase because thats whats given to them -- the difference is theyre better and retrieving the puck and executing in the offensive zone.
Thats more a talent issue than coaching. And this team isnt as talented as everyone seems to think, but now we're getting into another conversation.
im not saying this is torts' fault but i've noticed that there are plenty of times a game where they are at the other team's blue line and instead of looking around they immediately dump the puck in without a second thought. and a lot of the time they have an open teammate skating up who can gain the zone easily. these morons need to keep their heads up. the decision making on this team is pretty poor most of the time.
