    I think the biggest thing with this Colts team after watching last nights game is breaking out of their own end. They are trying to hard to create that "fancy play", instead of doing 2-3 quick passes to get out of their own end. Often times I notice how they get caught doing too many passes in their own end and it leads to a turnover and a offensive opportunity for the opposing team. This Colts team may lack some skill, but in this league everyone should be able to breakout of their own end quickly & efficiently.

    Add in the fact they just throw blind passes into the middle seemingly at random, I really wonder what's going on at practice. I've seen house league teams play smarter. Looking back to the 2016-17 team, I feel this year's team has much more talent, but they played a solid structure that year.

    Yes very good point, and it's weird because Dale still is the coach but I wonder if he switches the systems up on every team he has. Gotta wonder why things aren't clicking, its the simple plays that they seem to not be able to make and it unfortunately costs them games.

    Fun factoid, former players Lemieux (Jets), Little (Jets),Pearson (Pens), Mangiapane (Flames,1st NHL goal) and finally Lebanc ( Sharks, 1st career trick) scored last night.... not bad for player development I would say....not to mention the other players; Ekblad, TJ Brodie, Rasmussen, Anthanasiou, Clifford etc who dressed yesterday for their NHL clubs.

    This team looks worse and worse each game they play. Blows my mind watching them play out there like a bunch of atom house league players. Just awful no wonder why they can never get a good crowd for games, who wants to watch this team play.

    Awful.

    The Colts have checked out enough said... Team needs to look at making some serious changes this summer. No way this team should be sitting 7 points out of a playoff spot with this talent.

    Next season should be better for you guys. Niagara will be horrendous, Kingston still wont be good, Hamilton will be bad. Ottawa/Oshawa will be really good, Sudbury, Peterborough and North bay will be strong. Wildcards for me would be you guys and Missy

    Team needs to start fresh with a new coach next year and plan towards the 2020-2021 season. They can't get away from this plan and add next year. Will need more assets. They also need to absolutely nail the draft in April with the high picks they have. Hopefully they get a new coaching staff in place as soon as possible, and get plans together for all the players for summer.
