    Exactly. What happens to anyone, any company, any team that stick to the past and the ‘way it’s always been’?

    They become irrelevant, go out of business, or play horrible hockey.

    “Thank you for giving us the freedom to be creative on the ice”, MARKUS NASLUND, Vancouver Dec 11,2010 to Pat Quinn his former coach as his sweater was retired by the Canucks.

    NOTE: To Brent Sutter. Good teams should be given the freedom to be creative and not be forced to play like robots.

    Can anyone explain to me how Brent Sutter expects 3 Calgary Flames forwards, would have a snowball’s chance in hell of scoring cycling the puck in the corner “while looking at the boards and not at the center of the ice’? How the hell are they ever going see an open defenceman or see a scoring opportunity while looking away from the center of the offensive zone?

    The teams that are beating them are being coached to play a newer modern style of game that stresses possession of the puck and ‘ALWAYS’ making sure there is at least one, if not 2, open players to pass to. And they do that by facing the center of the ice not the boards.

    It’s time to get a coach whose feet aren’t firmly cemented to the style of game of the 1980s.

    The game has CHANGED. The Flames style of play HASN’T!
