Also, when the late man comes into the picture, if the play isn't there, he'll go down low into the cycle right away. I don't notice us doing that. Usually we lose the puck soon afterwards. Detroit has way more possession time down low than we do.

Detroit also has a more active trap with the defense stunting up into the neutral zone.

Hey, gotta compare yourself to the best.
Exactly. The Habs need more elite grinders ie more holmstroms vs Kotsops but also more top flight talent on all lines and on 2-3 pairings.
