What we are witnessing right now is a combination of bad.
Bad players and bad coach.
I appreciate hard ass coaching as I can be one myself, but MT is not a good NHL coach.
System, lines, scratches, whatever you want to point at...the real point is he is not the answer for our beloved Pens.
We generate no offense. Way too predictable. The opposing D men have to be laughing all the way out of the zone.
Where is the space? The open ice that everyone else has in this league..(yes even bad teams ) are getting but we are not. You dont need talent to have some room to skate. But when you do the same thing over and over and over, it becomes really easy to defend. We make every teams defense look like HOFers.
I watch a lot of games from other teams. As I mentioned even they generate scoring chances..LEGITIMATE scoring chances against good teams, , the big difference is that they dont have finishers either.
WE dont have talent to finish either, (well I guess we dont..our guys dont get a chance to finish) we just have a horrible system, or no system at all.
I am not sure if we really even have a system, but if that is it, talent or not, no thanks.
Where other AHL teams use their farms as a priority to develop players,
MT used a system to win games.
Other farms use that time to see if a kid can produce and see if he can shine. It is ok to lose some games 6-2 if they are sending polished players to their big club. We just want to win the AHL every year.
Not saying the other clubs dont want to win, as it is a competitve game, but their main objective is talent for their big club.
Right now, the Pens need to be looking at not only players, but really and maybe first...the head coach. He has to go.
I would rather see us lose games right now 10-5. If that meant giving some of our guys chances to score and polish their game, great.
Right now, this team and players are regressing at record pace. Including Sid. If Sid were playing anywhere but Pittsburgh, he might close to the top of the scoring race. That is not the goal, but it wouldnt hurt Sidney's game development being in such a losing season.
MT has to go. Please.
This is a joke.
Boston, freaking Boston had a million odd man rushes agasint us tonight,,and maybe 2 that we had.
That is not the D-men's fault, it is the fault of our IGNORANT HEAD COACH.
