I'm glad SOMEONE recognizes this.

The new coach needs to be in place so we can figure out what we want to be. Defensive team built on grinding it out?

Skill team? transition team? Lots of question marks. right now we seem to be a jack of all trades master of none type of team, which usually are the mediocre ones. TEams w/o identities are the easiest to beat unless they are filled with "elite" players playing all sorts of different games that blend in perfectly. I cant remember the last team that won w/o a clear sense of identity up and down the lineup.

I personally think we should be a puck possession team with quick passing and sustained offensive zone attack time, with a hard hitting D. I think that's the recipe for success. However, I don't believe we have the pieces to make that happen..not right now anyway.
