Cant agree with alot of you. The offensive zone possession is looking good. Problem is they either miss the net on the shot or eat the puck against the boards. Similar problems to Torts era offense. Much boardplay and missed shots.
I agree I like what I'm seeing, got robbed on a few attempts and everything else is right in the goalies chest or missing the net completely
The shot doesn't even need to be hard. They need to be deflected, or at least someone has to be screening Budaj to make his life more difficult.
I think the team is stuck trying to find a balance between playing spread out (like the way Vignault had Vancouver play) and getting to the dirty areas. It looks like a team that's still trying to find its identity offensively.
On a positive note, Kreider and Zuccarello are looking very good. Bad luck/bad finishing preventing them a goal/assist at this point.
Those two should be on the same line along with Brassard, then we'll see some goals. No lines work on the offense, we can't score, AV are you lame? Dont keep Zucc on the 4'th line, what a waste of talent.
