Mostly concerned about the long term of our "sytem" / coach.

To me, it sure boosts our defense by always being in the corners on the forecheck. A lot harder to give up odd man rushes when the puck is always down low in their end. However, tt sacrifices good scoring opportunities for our forwards. As a result, it's just throwing low % shots at the goalie and hoping it goes in. We have the worst scoring chances out of any team. I'd almost rather go back to the trap and try to counter punch, rather than be on the boards 99% of the game.

As far as the roster goes, we're still lacking a dynamic forward. I think that a player like Granny needs someone like that in order to be successful. Every time Granlund touches the puck, it seems like he's along the boards with zero space. The way he's being used (or is playing) is like a small grinder with good hands.

But as to the main point of the thread, it's a mid level concern. I just don't think Yeo is up to the task, nor is our system designed for our players.
