Basic concepts like "everybody take your guy" in the D zone and "pucks to the net with traffic" are non existent on this team.
no, we really don't "all the talent in the world".... we are sorely lacking in talent actually

hall is the only guy on our team who would be a 1st liner on almost every other team in the league.... RNH and eberle would be a 2nd liners on 80% (or more) teams in the league... yakupov would be in the minors or on a 3rd line.... j. schultz would be in the minors

our kids just aren't as good as many people seem to think they are, end of story
