By the time the forwards get back into the d zone they're completely gassed and ineffective. No wonder we can never get the puck out of our own zone or orchestrate any sort of breakout. I feel like I could have coached this team better than lavi.
You probably could have. I think anyone could have coached this team better. It's too bad too. I've said it about Laviolette in another thread - incredibly intelligent and smart guy, but just completely unwavering with regards to adapting his system.
