Same, LOL I never said we should fire Lavi
but seems like people may be misinterpreting it as such. I'm just making a thought-provoking thread.I think Lavi should stay
, he's been great thus far and like others have pointed out, it's likely our training staff that needs an overhaul.
This thread is just to get everyone thinking about what effects (positive and negative) Laviolette has had upon the organization. Looks like it's been successful so far in that regard.
We need more suggestions as to how Lavi should tweak his coaching style, IMO. We need more guys crashing the net, and defensively-responsible players back at the point on powerplays (Voracek? Really?
). I'm sick of him playing 4 offensemen on the PP, it risks stupid turnovers when we have a weaker guy manning one of the points. I don't care how powerful JVR's slapshot may be, he never takes the shot from back there
, and besides, it would be better served from around the hashmarks.
Does anyone have any clue as to why he plays Voracek back there? I didn't think he had a very powerful (or accurate) shot. He's got a lot of jump and can set up plays, but that wouldn't be my choice of a pointman.
Pairings like Timo-Mez and Kubina-Carle would be a better plan than running 4 O's, recent lack of offense be damned. You worry about stopping pucks first, then you worry about scoring. Of course, having Carle back on the point
is always a ******* liability.
