Wow you just described the 2018-19 Flyers. And i saw improvement in a few areas when Gordon took over but it wasn't enough the power play was still one of the worst in the NHL.
I have to say for the first time since they hired Lavy can i feel good about it too.
This is a big offseason. I hope the players understand all the excuses will be gone come next season.
There no one left to be blamed but themselves now.
New GM and he has his coach.
Vigneault has always favoured an up-tempo game, and with how fast the league is now, I think that sitting back is just about the worst thing you can do. Teams that lollygag and piss around, especially in their own, get absolutely taken apart there. I don't see how passivity can be remotely connected with winning in today's game.
I think is just a really good hire by the Flyers.
Alain Vigneault plans to implement a "high-tempo, take-our-game-to-them approach" with the Flyers
This approach sounds good to me...because i am tired of the other teams dictating the game and the Flyers sitting back on their heels
trying to find an answer...i want the other team to have to find an answer for them. And get rid of this constant dump and chase.
And if he can get this talented PP on paper ever going they should be back
Yeah .. I was kind of feeling the same way...hence the reason I shared it. The Athletic usually has some great in-depth articles but it is a subscription based website. I generally only can see 2-3 articles a month for free.
This was a good one to share with everyone........ glad you liked it.
everything I'm reading is helping me to feel pretty good about AV. I like that he is excited to come here and is looking forward to coaching young players. It is apparent he has some ideas about what should be done.
