You'd think at this point he'd change that **** up already..how many goals has it cost us?
We should be winning 2-0 ugh
Its part of the collapsing zone Defense we play. The Wings stay in the passing lanes but give the half wall up, pretty much allowing the opposing Dmen to keep the puck in the zone uncontested(in case there is a turnover). Its a very stupid system. But its what we play. Torts always overuses the stretch pass.
What really doesn't make sense is why not let the Dmen skate the puck above the hashmarks? Why make risky clears/passes in the corners? I don't know how this is sound defensive thinking.
