I have no clue what Rolston wants our team to do. No identity.

I think back to that draft video where they talk about wanting to be tougher to play against. We have a ton of youth that is capable of playing in your face, aggressive hockey. And what do we do? We play a system that completely neuters them. It's horrendous. I'm worried that what should actually be chalked up to poor coaching is being attributed to the youth of our team.

This is absurd.
Whats absurd is you are going after people over something you nothing about. Then have a hissy fit when its pointed out.

As an example you think we only have 3 or 4 guys that want to forecheck. Wrong we have a passive system thats why we look that way. The fact that you don't understand that is fine. But the fact that you feel the need to attack my posts without being able to grasp this is quite annoying.

It's 50/50 at this point. You can have one or the other and still win a few games. You can't have both.

I don't think there's any question Rolston should be fired if the team continues to employ the same weak-ass strategy. Afraid to lose, with a team that is built to lose. It's nonsense.

I might be willing to give Rolston the benefit of the doubt if he had any sort of pedigree to look at. But the guy didn't even prove himself at the AHL level--he was there for just half a year before getting called up.

At least he did one thing right: pull the goalie with over 2 minutes left. Most coaches wait too long to pull the goalie--hell even 2 minutes might be waiting too long down 2.

No...what is annoying is when you see those 3 or 4 guys out on the ice you see that forecheck not as consistent as it should be but that is expected out of a young team.

I wonder if games like this make Miller reconsider the teams on his no-trade list.

Yeah..all that means is he might not be the right guy to do the little things to win a hockey game.

He isn't here to win hockey games..he's here to develop the young kids.

It means he isn't proven, whether it be as a pro development coach or a pro coach who wins games. Seeing as how all his coaching maneuvers seem geared at trying the hardest not to lose, he should be judged on how poorly his coaching is at winning. What's he doing to develop the young players exactly?

Right now.... Miller is being wasted... his career is close to being over but Buffalo is not the place he should be... I hope Regier can move him soon...

Agreed.

Take some chances. Sure, mistakes will be made, but actual plays may also be made. And as long as the mistakes are recognized and worked on (aka coaching), there will be overall improvement.
