The fast breakout worked last season, but other teams have adapted to us. When is Therrien going to adapt in turn?
Excellent post.
Simply put, our goal scorers cannot score if the puck is not being brought to them. Which is why I mad a proposal on the Trade Rumor Forum to get us on of the bet outlet passers in the game (Gorges, Desharnais, 1st for Campbell) .
