The first part of your post I fixed. The second point doesn't make sense considering many of our players are having the worst offensive seasons of their career and for much of this season we were sitting at 29th in scoring. Saying that Pete's system covers up our lack of scoring is ludicrous.
go back and read that thread. The first five posts alone were of the opinion that only the bruins were a difficult opponent. I'd qoite but im on my phone. That's beside the point though, I'm just trying to highlight the incredible reactionary nature of these boards. If we won last night does this thread exist? No, so one tough loss is the difference between a serious discussion of firing Lou and deboer and everyone sitting around singing koombaya like we're playoff bound.
There is not a doubt in my mind that Pete has helped this team more than hurt it. We do not have elite scorers (and yes you can blame Lou for that if you want), and the system that we run specifically tries to compensate for that lack. The fact that we are 29th in scoring yet are 4 points out if a playoff spot proves my point. Take a look and let me know how many teams are in the bottom ten in scoring yet are in playoff position. I honestly don't know but I doubt there's many.
Are you blaming pete for Ryder not scoring in over 20 games? Or Brunner disappearing for long stretches? Plenty of other forwards have found the back of the net during these times, so I'm not sure how he is somehow holding these players back.
On a side note for the people complaining about Larsson- do you think him in the lineup makes this a playoff team? As much as is like him up here. I'm not so sure.
