The changes in terms of style defenitly mostly will be in
terms of personell
-- like you can't play a high tempo style with slow players, like that explains itself basically. Nor without D's who can get the puck to the forwards.
That said, I do hope and think that small adjustments will be made and that we will challenge the other team more on their defensive blueline -- instead of playing it safe there.
Anyones opinions is worth as much, but I personally think the talk about NYR beeing defensive minded and what not is just pure and utter BS. Jagr had a problem with Renney's style? That certainly notices when he broke the scoring record in NY... Jagrs unit couldn't controll the puck, and when you don't got the puck you have to play defense. JJ's first 2 seasons here they had the puck all the time, thats the diffrence.
Renney had his team taking pretty big risks in terms of playing a offensive puck possesion game. But the problems where that Drury wasn't comfy in that role, Gomez didn't get any support on the 2nd line really.
