5 games in... this thread is ridiculous.

New coach. Completely new philosophy. Players need to get used to playing a different system.

For Hank - new pad regulations that directly impact his play. He has clearly not gotten used to them either. He also historically starts years off slow before he picks it up.

For defense - new defensive coach in Samuellson. Little-no emphasis on shot blocking.

Moral - team needs time to adjust. Only thing going against AV, in my opinion, is his lack of a mean streak. This is NY. Fans like grit. Can't have your best player head hunted with no retaliation. Can't be embarrassed by a rookie with no retaliation. Can't lose 9-2 and 6-0 and not have an emotional reaction. This is NY. That won't fly for long.
