Hartnell will try to win a board battle, and in 15 seconds their offensive opportunity is gone and back on their heals again. I think it has some to do with the system and maybe giroux isn't the right player for this system? But this goes back to management. Why give berube a 2 year contract before actually seeing what he does with this crew?
The contract is for show. He can be fired at any time. He was given it to show to the players that they have a coach, and that they're not in a state of limbo.
