Boy does AV get a lot of blame here. I guess it's an easy target. Fire the coach herpderp. - Early on Garrison on PP didn't work as we all saw. Didn't help the breakouts, unable to make plays with the puck on blue line, bad passes, the rare times he was able to get shots through they were off the mark. - Kassian stopped moving his feet and made several bad plays defensively and cost the team some goals and got demoted. For a reason. He's got more minutes lately since he's playing better. Schroeder aswell, while not costing any goals, his intensity and ability to make plays went MIA. He was playing more than enough minutes and doing nothing before demotion. - AV wanted right hand shot there with Kesler out. Again, a huge chance given to a young player, and he was unable to do anything with it. - Injuries? Certain players not playing as good? Things change. Bieksa being out screwed up the defense. Malhotra, Kesler, Booth, Schroeder, Ebbett moving in and out in offence. - Lack of identity and focus? This team had a better start to season (first 17 games) than last 2 years when they've won the PT. Slumping now for sure, but it happens. - Broken system that has won the regular season two years straight and in the the other year would've won the Cup too had the lineup not been decimated by injuries. Give me a break.
