Love the post on Q. I mean I can't stand Q. With this talent we just should be better D wise.
CAn you imagine Hitchcock with this team. Or Dave Tippett. I mean these guys have blah rosters and just shut you down. If we could shut you down AND score, we are much better.
We play a system that works when totally stacked, esp on the back end. When you don't have the roster to play it, you give up chances you don't need to. I mean when you have HIGH end O talent, you will win games just based on them alone.
That is what we are doing. We go as a team as the big 4 go. It was a bigger factor last year with its ups and downs since we had even more reliance on the top end guys.
We are better this year since all 4 are going and that is helping to even it out, but we can look BAD when the big guys don't have it.
Strange to talk about a coaching change on a top team in its conference but when do we get some efficiency as a team with our coaches implemented system?
