The collapsing style right now looks pretty bad. 5 red shirts in one cluster **** in front of the net. Puck squirts lose to an open player with an empty net... That one wasn't going to be a post.
Yeah I notice so much more collapster****ing these days. When we were rolling, we just had a way of taking the puck away by giving no space and really being a puck possession team. Now you can buy our blue line for less than a BC steamy and it's just reactionary + quite a drop off in blocked shots/sticks in the way
There's swarming, then there's what we're doing lately and like mentioned on AC, other teams have adjusted to our swarm.
Boullion will be fine when Diaz is back, but I don't know how to rejuvenate the general. If Emelin were still here, I would even suggest giving him 2-3 games off (though I would have expected us to have at least 2 more wins so we could afford it). Markov missed a pretty wide open chance himself earlier in the game when he was doing one of his vintage pinches. Not the one when he had quite some time with the puck on his stick after getting a great cross ice pass, but when he just whiffed on a pretty easy puck coming across with a câge béante. It's all fatigue-related.
The collapsing is also a big reason Price has had struggles since he is getting screened by our own guys, the right guy isn't being picked up and we're tipping so many pucks into our net.
