Good morning boneheads!
I didn’t see the game yet, will watch later tonight. So whatever I say has nothing to do with this game.
Last three games ( maybe even four, if you include the one Hank won against the Blues ) are very worrisome to me. And not because they got outscored 18-3, and not because their compete level went down. I don’t expect that to be in full display game in, game out. You are bound to see a few stinkers, sometimes in succession. I’m worried because they have totally lost their structure that was on display a few weeks after this season started. They lost it in all three zones. Everything is 180 from what David Quinn was able to build initially. They don’t work as one unit anymore, they do not know what to expect from their teammates, they seemingly do not know where to be without a puck. No puck support. I can go on and on. If someone can explain it, please do. I can’t. It’s on the coaching stuff. And I am not necessarily questioning David Quinn’s coaching ability. I just have no idea how to explain it. Anyone?
The structure needs to be in place again before another deadline purge occurs because it will be much more difficult to reinstall it with so many new/young faces in the lineup. If David Quinn and Co can’t accomplish that it will be a lost season imo.
