There's no semblance of a system at all. Some nights they forecheck like demons, other nights they try fancy plays into the zone. It's very frustrating to watch. Maybe it's not all on Cameron, but someone has to pay when a system (or lack of) breaks down completely.
Safe to say there is a system and they follow it when they feel like it.
Trotz came in to Washington and laid down the law by scratching Ovechkin. Whoever the ringleader(s) is(are) here that has(have) the team getting away from coaches orders needs a message sent the same way.
