The things that really annoys me is when the players talk about how they need to bear down and give more effort like that is going to fix the fundamental flaws in the system Laviolette has them playing. It doesn't matter how hard the three forwards try and forecheck if the other team can easily pass the puck past them for an odd man rush the other way.

When your team's system makes it difficult to enter the other team's zone with the puck, and very easy for them to get the puck in your own zone no amount of effort can compensate. Teams like the Devils clog the neutral zone against us while we offer no real resistance in that area.
