im surprised there's not more people pointing out our obviously lack or creativity.
We have players who could play a lot better but they are ask to dump and fight on the boards all game long. We have pretty much no plays in the middle of the offensive zone unless there's an OBVIOUS opportunity. We have our 3 guys pinned to the board in the corners or behind the net... IF we win that battle we're gonna try to get the puck to the point and our point man will take a shot to the net... 33% of the time he'll miss the net, 33% its gonna be blocked, 32% the goalie will make a save and maybe 1% well get a good deflection or a goal. they'll rarely simply try to take shots from the side low for bouncers or a rebound off a dman or something. they have to get the puck to our point man almost every time and thats where pucks goes to die. Also really often our guys doesnt even have the time to go in front of the net by the time the point man take his shot so we have no screen or anything
So our whole fvcking system consist of trying to create that play who has a very low % of success. and 85% of our breakouts are made to try to achieve THAT play. No wonder we don't have lots of scoring chances. Anyone not seeing this must be blind.
When we're scoring off our forecheck it's really opportunist and you can't put a whole season on that. We need more offensive weapons than that.
for the love of god someone agree with me here please.
