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.
From what I have seen to this point the swarm is working a hell of a lot better then the joke Krueger was running last year. They aren't getting run ragged in their own zone nearly as bad as last year. Clearly it's going to take time and their hasn't been a total buy in which is needed with this system. They aren't aggressive enough with it yet which Eakins mentioned as being a key component of this system. It seems time is in short supply around here but I hope Dallas sticks to his guns and gives it a chance. It would be nice to get a god damn save once in a while too. The two headed **** beast is making this operation look bad.
