I'm gonna go ahead and say that trying to learn 3 different defensive systems in 3 seasons didn't help our young guys become better defensive players. Especially since there's a huge difference between Kreuger's simple man defense (wingers cover points and half wall) and Eakins swarm defense (pressure where needed, cover for holes while extra guy is pressuring, etc. ) I don't think it's a coincidence that our whole team looks lost in the Dzone.
It just pisses me off that a rookie coach was also hired in Col, and they're now the best defensive team in the NHL while having probably the least impressive D core in the league. Meanwhile, we've given up 59 goals in 14 GP. That's 3.9 GA per game.
