To make it worse is even with different players we play the same way, expecting players who don't fit that style to play this way. Even worse teams have figured us out. When you're a top team the previous year, teams study you to figure out how to beat us. Well the league has done that and to no surprise Torts hasn't adjusted, which is going to be his undoing.
We have no cohesion, no set plays that work, no powerplay, the penalty kill isnt even all that great, we have nothing. We play slap hockey and change. The players and coaches are satisfied after tying the other team in a period. Every now and then that's okay but in my world the team that scores more goals wins. I'm satisfied when we win, not tie.
