read between the lines: Plex says the players are skilled they can make the passes, "but" they have to play the basics and put the puck deep. (which forces our small forwards into board battles, why do we dump in on the PP???) #secret messages
There is a little bit of truth to every joke. Fire the coach was an omen of things to come.
pretty sure he's referring to the gainey - ghauthier transition era, were more then half the team got booted and a coaching change, more then a ritualistic spiritual hocuspocus foreshadowing realization.
i especially like the part were he said that it doesnt matter what the system is, as long as everyone is executing it. Wisdom, applied to hockey and real life.
