In a lot of cases this is not a Lane Lambert team. His so called leaders in the room never bought his style of coaching or his systems. It was so transparent many nights that htese guys were freelancing out there. To long with no playbook? Maybe. Scouting has long been a fans concern here. The are just to many storieds out there to discount what he hasn't or doesn't do to not be right in some respects. I'm still not sold on Dalas as GM. He just doesn't know the right people in the right places to get it done. Kamloops and Kelowna both had NHL players and coaches dropping n throughout the year to help out with practices. Mac T, Hitchcock, Hannan, Nash, teh list goes on. Who came here to 'help out'? Was anyone even asked? Brewer was in town for the Brad May game. What a perfect chance to have him stick around a few days and skate with these young men. Nope. As far as I know no invitation was extended and back to Edmonton he went.
Sorry to disagree so much on here, but its more the scouting and GM than it is the coaching with this team right now.
