It does not explain lack of crativity on offence, frequently having all 3 forwards below the goal line.
It does not explain sloppy shift changes.
It does not explain ice time management for underperforming players.
It does not explain blown defencive assignments.
Other than our lack of success against the Rangers and Devils, every team deals with all those issues. Did you see how awful the Kings were in their own zone last night? Completely outworked by the Blues, but Quick bailed them out, until Quick had a tape to tape pass to Steen behind the net.
A goalie with Bryz's contract needs to be a mistake eraser, and he's obviously not. That's all I'll say to avoid this becoming another goaltending thread.
