But personally, I think a coaching change would do this team wonders. Vinny even said that they spend more than half the practice in the offensive end. Philly is a "run and gun" team that can't score 5 on 5 and has poor defense and suspect goaltending. Could be a long year unless there is a commitment to good D.
