Honestly it's time to just fire this guy and get someone new in here that can foster offense with what we have and will use the new kids like Lindberg, Fasth, Hrivik, Miller and Kreider correctly.

Teams that possess the puck and play puck possession games win in the long run. A balanced system that focuses on good puck possession and positional defense is what this team needs.

2012- Kings
2011- Bruins
2010- Blackhawks
2009- Pens
2008- Detriot

The Kings, Blackhawks, Pens and Detriot all play or played heavy puck possession games with solid defense when they won the cup. The Bruins less. It's no secret. Teams that have the puck all game and are allowed to make plays out there without being afraid of making mistakes (and when they do make mistakes we just happen to have the best goalie in the world in lundqvist behind us) don't get worn out over the course of a season and are the teams that can have a sustainable offense.

Playing with that type of flow at even strength also transfers over to the PP. How do you expect a team that plays a crash and bang style at even strength to suddenly change mindsets to flow and creativity on the PP?? It's very rare.

Time for someone else. I don't care if you have to search in the minors or juniors for someone who employs that type of system. Just do it.
