like i said somewhere, on the offence its not a personal problem we have a very similar roster than last year.
What i see is that the guys are not executing the system with enough intensity, which lead to us not creating turnovers, not pinning the other team in their end and not creating good scoring chances. More often we're just dumping the puck, losing that battle and the other team get an easy breakout, so we're giving away our possession a lot more.
So like i said to be successful in that system so have to be intense and aggressive, that's easy to do against top teams and division rivals or in the playoffs, but even though they are professional and all, it must be hard to go out and play that intense dump and chase game and pretty much run around and battle all game long / all season long.
You really need to be pumped and it seems like most of the game that they are losing it's cause they are not intense (the only line showing up every night and playing that style perfectly is the Gionta Carter Bernier line and well they are not top players we can't rely on them that much.
Would that somehow explain why we're playing great against top teams / division rivals and terrible against other teams? i mean... i dont see any other explanation lol Thoughts?
