Uh no,

Team Canada had the puck all the time and it was always in the other team's zone. That's the opposite of what's happening with the Habs.

A "grinding" identity with this team makes absolutely no sense at all. We a skilled team with speed, we're lacking size... so why the **** does this moron have us playing a grinding system?

He changed the system early in the year and basically dumped Eller after the Edmonton game. Since then our play has dropped off a cliff. The numbers have been posted along with graphs that clearly show how far we fell... YES he changed the system and it's very easy to show this.

Lying? Geez I don't know what you mean.

I've been lobbying for MT to win the Jack Adams all year long. You clearly just haven't been paying attention.
