Killer Instinct

Postby lifetimefan on Wed May 08, 2013 5:00 am

Since 2008 this team had shown a lack of killer instinct. From failing to close out a series when they had the opportunity to not closing out games there is no killer instinct. As a team they just don't seem to have the extra gear to shut down a team. My question is why? I am befuddled.

They need more Mortal Kombat in the neutral zone.

They won the cup in 2009. So they had a killer instinct then.

I don't think its an extra gear that they need. Collectively, they seem to lose their minds in games. Not recognize the situation and play accordingly, take dumb penalties, make dumb passes, no attention to detail. It is not hard for me to see how this has happened under Bylsma or why they continued to have that sort of discipline in 2009, when the growth in that area that they experienced under FCMT was still fresh in their minds.
