Well, if you don't attack straight at a guy like Ryan Cochrane all game when given the chance....? If you spend the first 20 minutes of the game and the first half of OT playing bunkered in....? If you send 120-minute Heaps on to shoot instead of 60-minute Dempsey....? And if you look sub on Larentowicz in OT instead of a potential penalty-taker like Abundis.....? Nicol's coaching will always give us a chance, even with lesser players. Trouble is, he didn't know what to do with a talent advantage. The "keep it close" mantra didn't suit our level of talent this year. It betrayed us instead.
