Some more respect needs to be shown about the difficult transition between that and the higher quality scoring chances that this man to man defense gives up. Missed assignments, guys flying in on the rush, prime chances in the slot while our guys stick-check away. I could tolerate this if it eventually led to more offense. It hasn't.

But why do I bother asking for this sort of cognitive thinking? This is a board where a ton of posters thought AV would come in, unlock the stifled offense, and everything else would remain the same.
This 100 %
