Now, this system may work well with an older, more experienced team, however most of our core players are still feeling their way into the league. It's asking a lot of these players to learn the NHL game and a new/unusual system. This is a Colossal mistake on Eakins part.
Out of curiosity because I honestly don't know ... what other teams in the NHL employ the "swarm" system (or something similar)?
