We are consistently outshot, outplayed and outchanced. Only thing that hasn't happened is us being outscored and this is in spite of us being at the bottom in 5 on 5 scoring and our PP sinking like a rock.

You'd have a point if we were playing with the puck all the time and just couldn't put the puck in the net but that's not the case. Our goalie has stood on his head for us and stolen games that we didn't deserve to win. And now that he's gone our record is starting to sink (despite us getting points in Pittsburgh and Detroit that we didn't deserve.)

I say nobody/nothing can prevent those kinds of players from producing. They always shine at some point, no matter what.
Yeah, Plecs just suddenly forgot how to play hockey...

Again, you might have a point if it was just him... its not. The whole team isn't producing.

It's the coach. And it's very easy to see that it's the coach.
