allaire works with the defensemen but i think it is more about the dmen and goalie working together as a unit, rather than developing the individual talents of the dmen...

so if you add langway, then langway can use his experience and knowledge to help develop the individual talent of the young dmen while allaire helps develop the individual talent of the young goalies...then allaire & langway work together to mold both groups into 1 unit...

the 2 areas aren't completely separate and need to be put together, but this allows you to isolate each area and give closer attention to it
