Warhippy Posted October 9, 2017 Share Posted October 9, 2017 I noticed something last night. Now bear with me, I am a shade in the cups (Happy Turkey Murder Weekend) but have been going over last nights game. In 2009 and 2010 when we basically got abused by the Hawks, The 1 standout and true takeaway was the coaching. Quenville literally out coached AV to the cup as it was. In 2009 when we got ousted it was in big part because Quenville opted to utilize Big Buff's buff in the face of opposing goalies. In 2010 again but also effectively shut down Pronger as well. Coaching was something we've been complaining about for a long time. We've had good coaches, but not coaches who thought on the fly Last night, while only 1 game in showed a piece of Green I wasn't too sure on. He out coached McClellan and the Oilers and all but had Dorsett...Derek frigging Dorsett shut down Conn McJesus. He also effectively managed 4 complete lines where the Sedins actually only had 14 minutes of ice time. Edler played some big minutes of the type AV used to give him in the same situations and he was quite effective. Now it's only 1 game and obviously it's pre mature but if Green is going to come in and actually think his way through games and change his plan on the fly in the manner that sees us successful instead of simply sticking to the game plan or "defending the tie" I will be thrilled. We could lose 55 games this year and as long as the compete level is there like last night I'd consider it awesome. Also...gobble gobble Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
