If you notice..Lavi really stresses special teams play as his trump card for his 5 on 5 deficiencies which includes constant line juggling as well as favoring some players over others with ice time. Last year they also got a crazy amount of bench penalties which was basically bad bench management on Lavis part and lack of discipline.

I remember last year teams (even Pitt adjusted) just made sure they were disciplined and cut down on their penalties and then clogged up the neutral zone or forechecked our D men hard and we were cooked. We upgraded the personnel a bit but not sure it will be enough especially with Gus and Streit still not up to speed so to speak.

BTW...one of Lecavalier's arguments about Boucher in Tampa was how he would switch up his linemates too much...I hope he realizes Lavi has the same malady when things are not going right...
