We're down a goal, 3rd period, 15 minutes left. Just got scored on

Time for a 4th line shift, right Mike?

This is the downside of paying a bunch of young kids before they have achieved anything.

The hustle has diminished. I don't blame Mike for playing the plugs. At least they play like they give a shit. Truly embarrassing game from top to bottom outside of Anderson.

Vegas plays the type of system we should be playing. Everything is built around possessing the puck and getting it to the net front.

Thing is I'm pretty sure our coach doesn't understand how to do it.
It's the exact opposite of what he wants. He wants us to "get the puck deep" (which is code for dump it in....aka, give the puck up) and the grind it along the walls. It's bad, ugly hockey. That he coaches this Leaf team the exact same way he coached a big, veteran Red Wing team full of plugs is nuts.
