I dont feel confident about this win. The ONLY positive was that price made saves when we needed it, but the team infront of him let him down.
Among other concerns, is the coaching staffs inability to get these guys playing Defence as a UNIT (5-5 and PK) and the coaching staffs inability to address the PP concerns. The guys aren't winning any battles along the boards in either zone and that leads to a lot of running around.
I have to stress that, while i do have my favorities/less-favourites on the team, the problem isn't about how the players are playing individually, but as a whole Unit. And that boils down to coaching. MT has been great so far, but he needs to step up to the challenge and get these guys playing for each other again. Yes our D is somewhat depleted, but the result shouldnt be THIS horrific.
The PP needs a MAJOR Overhaul in tactics. We need more one timers to the forwards. Right now, we only have shots from the point or forwards trying to keep it down low, and even when they do, it's not like they can do anything with it. They're just barely holding on.
No matter who is on the PP, we need quicker passing plays and a better sense of creativity if we're going to cash in on penalties.
