For anyone that is claiming we are freaking out about one game.... that isn't the case at all.

We are freaking out because we have seen the same issues that cost us the playoffs 2 seasons ago (getting owned by NJ), the shortened season, and our preseason carrying into tonight's game.

Our 5 on 5 play has been suspect for a while now, with this roster we shouldn't be struggling to score goals and finish. The lack of 60 minute efforts has been a constant problem. The goalie is left out on his own (last leafs goal), yet we keep blaming the goalie instead of the defensive system... how many goalies will it take before we start admitting it's the system?

As soon as a team pressures the puck carrier or clogs the neutral zone, the system falls apart, and instead of adjusting like the leafs did in the 2nd... lavi just keeps doing the same thing, no change except for mixing up the lines.

We have a good team, one that should be a strong playoff contender, I just don't think the team fits lavi's system anymore (since richards, etc left).
