All season so far the Pats have taken too many lazy penalties. Finally the team is admitting it's a problem. maybe the first step to correction is admitting the problem exists. All to often it's the veteran players taking these penalties. There have to be consequences and it needs to be rooted out. This team is playing without structure and defence is optional. They look lost with bad changes and all. It appears they need some additional experience behind the bench to help out.

I’m not up on Junior Hockey. However it dosent take an avid fan to know this years Regina Pats are in big trouble. They seem to get a squeaker victory now and then. The rest of the games seem to be the Pats being blown out by their competition.
I can see why last years GM\HC John Paddock resigned. Johns parting words words ... "it's the right time" to walk away. I believe he did everything he could to get a Pats team performing at a high level in order to win a Memorial Cup. John came close but no cigar.
