Not even just the players. Didn't like any of the coaching tonight as well. Pointless line switching (last game included) not adjusted the 5-man PP unit after the first debacle...
I'm with you both. Bylsma's strategy is so predictable. The Isles can do ONE thing good, and that is grind. So Bylsma switches his lines, and attempts to have a grinding-type game. By doing this, he takes the skill players out of the equation, asking them to hit and win battles along the boards. It played right into the Isles' hands.
If Letang was in there, they probably win both of the past 2 games. But the team cannot win without him, and that is all there is to it.
