The way the team plays offense makes me wonder what AV was talking about earlier. Every dman except McD needs to step up?
He called out Girardi, Stralman, Staal, DZ, Falk and Moore. that's 6/7 of your defensive corps.
If 6/7 of your Dmen are not playing up to par, maybe you should take a look at the Defensive coach or the system?
This team's problem is not D, it's scoring goals. He was brought in to upgrade the offense, which he has failed to do thus far but he calls out his Defense. The man is losing credibility with me.
Between John Moore, DZ and Falk, I find it pretty hard to believe that they are scratched for any little thing, yet Pouliot and Pyatt fail to produce anything and keep getting chances to play. I heard Joe mention in the telecast that the coaching staff liked Pouliot and are giving him every chance to "find his game".
It doesn't sound like ice time is earned
One other peculiar thing he said.
On scoring, “we need our back end to help us on the breakouts and on the rush and in the offensive end and they are doing a pretty good job but if they get a little better…this is a tough league to score. Hopefully we can get it done and have it start tonight.”
So it's the D's fault that they are not scoring enough?
Ya know, if the offense can finish some of the chances they are getting, you wouldn't have a problem scoring.
How about Pouliot, Pyatt, Richards, Brass?
I haven't heard him call out anybody on offense yet.
He is officially on my Ratings Watch Negative list.
