The fast breakout worked last season, but other teams have adapted to us. When is Therrien going to adapt in turn?
Nailed it!!! This is spot on accurate.

And, conversely, the Habs are not aggressively fore-checking like we did last season.

One would think that Therrien would see how well the aggressive play AGAINST us is working so well and decide that we need to do the same to the other team.
