It is sooooooooooooo painful to watch
When a team plays this poorly for extended periods of a game it's either a team that is completely void of confidence and/or a team that simply can't respond to the coach.
Either way I can't see how Wilson can continue being the coach of this team.
It's just not working......the PK is bad, the PP is bad. Players are digressing
They started off with so much speed and making things happen and then they revert back to typical Leaf hockey. They miss Colton Armstrong a lot, he does a lot of little things you don't notice in the game, like finishing checks, making good decisions, getting in the shooting lanes (especially during the PK). I know this miss Phaneuf, not so much for his defense, but for his ability to initiate offense.
I honestly now think they need a coach like CJ, although I'm not a big fan of his, and develop a team defensive approach first until they get more talent up front, and try to squeeze 2-1, 3-2 victories in the meantime.
They also need a special team coach for the powerplay and powerkill.
And better players
And more hockey sense
And a better PK
And bigger players up front
And a #1 center (and a #2 center and a #3 center)
And more empty seats so it hits them in the pocket book (that will unfortunately never happen)
Smaller nets on their end of the ice and bigger nets on the opposing end of the ice.
And a few more things that I can't write without being censored
I might have to start watching the LA kings, Black Hawks or St.Louis blues. They play real entertaining hockey.
It's sooooo painful...........................
