They aren't adapting or trying new things. They look slow. They are missing passes.

It's really awful to watch.

They need to start shooting after they create open ice (which they are still able to do), instead of going for the cross ice pass. The preds are too good at tying up sticks and blocking passes.

the problem is that they constantly state that they DONT WANT to change their game. the problem with this is that their game obviously doesnt work in the playoffs when ever opponent is giving 100%

Absolutely. And it would make the opponent team guessing, which is a good thing. Right now it is so predictable it's easy for any team to defend against them.

And the Sedins, especially Henrik, like to pass the puck to get the perfect play, so all they have to do is to close the pass lanes. It's not that the Sedins are lazy or anything, they are just easy to guess right now.

So why not try something different like splitting them? Like I said before, Henrik was doing quite well without Daniel last year, they are not obliged to play together
