The team simply suffers from a complete lack of organization and communication in all areas of the ice. Drop passes to no one. Dumps with no one chasing. Cycles down deep, with one forward just not cycling. Passes to empty points. Clearing passes to forwards who just aren't are expecting them/paying attention. Passes to space, where the nearest player is an opponent. The proverbial right hand doesn't know what the proverbial left hand is doing.
Bylsma just needs Mario's boot up his ass and we'll be the first seed.
