Outshot and out-possessed again. How does it get fixed?



"The Sabres were outshot in the first period 15-4, and basically spent the entire period chasing Winnipeg all around their own zone. "

I can't count the number of times that this sentence, in its essence, has been included in a recap of a Sabres' game. Sometimes we win, sometimes we don't. What I would like to know is how does it get fixed? I love the Sabres but hardly ever get to watch them. I'm also not that knowledgeable on the nuances of the game, having never had the chance to play or be personally involved in the sport. So I am very interested in knowing why this situation continues to exist game after game? Is it a coaching flaw? Do we not have players who are capable of gaining and maintaining control of the puck? Is it a system failure? And why does Vanek not shoot more? Is he afraid of being accused of overshooting?
