If it's coaching and not the players, then they need to fix that. From my understanding that's Lacroix's job, and he needs to get it in gear because this has been going on all season. This team, defensively, has neither strength or physicality.

Granted Borje Salming was 2 years older when he came into the league, but he was also one of the first foreign players and he had no problem throwing the big checks and he was a lot smaller.
I get what you're saying, but we're still looking at another 3 years until Heddy becomes what he should be.

Wallace really has a shot, eh? Fitting he scores the game winner vs the Islanders.

So 3 years until the kid learns that he's 6'7" and can actually deck people in front of the net? Forgive me but he either has that instinct or not, I don't think that has to be taught to him. Let's see the improvement that we are all hoping for start next season.

You don't have to deck someone to be a good defenseman.

Marty's "ENG attempt" in the 2nd even made it to the NHL.com main page: http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/con...d=35&id=167432

I certainly hope so....last night's giveaway in the corner that cost us a goal or when he's chasing players behind the net and leaving Brewer alone in front is what worries me most. Brewer can't do it by himself and the forwards aren't really helping a lot. Marty tries, but he's not going to move anybody.

Again, i'm not sold on some of our coaching tactics in a few different facets.

To me with Hedman it's about decision making and that includes when to be physical and when not to be physical. He doesn't have to put a guy in the third row every shift like "HIT SOMEBODY" guy behind me wants him to, but he needs to get better at when to play the puck and when to put his man into the boards. Some of the best defenseman to play the game weren't big hitters but they know when it needs to be done. Hopefully Hedman figures that out...he's still 21 so he's got time. Obviously everyone has high expectations for him because he was a high pick but he's still a young guy. If he's still making the same mistakes a few years down the road then I'm going to be worried.
