I missed today's game, but prior to that, the difference in style has been night and day. It's inconceivable this is what DB's been preaching all along and the players just weren't listening.
Inconceivable? You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. - Inigo Montoya
Players tune out coaches all the time and sometimes it takes a different voice to bring them back to earth. I hope it's true because it means that this team can play the type of hockey that wins a Stanley Cup and only needs some tweaks rather than a shakeup.
Of course, but not to that degree. Players, at least on this team, don't just play a completely different system on their own for weeks. If they have been, without serious repercussions, the team is in worse shape than even the harshest critics here have imagined.
Believe what you want to, but I'm giving credit where it's due: DB.
