Not sure where he got the idea that the defensive play was strong the last few years though, despite the improvement in that area after the trade deadline last year.

I'm also happy to hear that he wants to have a speedy team that will play with it's heart on it's sleeve. That's the kind of hockey I like watching, and team I love rooting for. I think Tucker and Jones will play big parts for this team under Granato.
