I had mentioned this in the GDT.

Just got back from the game...

Does anyone else see the dramatic differences in systemic play between Stevens and Laviolette.

The breakout is night and day. Stevens = nobody in our zone, home run pass. Laviolette = Several players in our zone, two or three quick passes.

The aggressive pinching leads to more turnovers and better neutral zone play.

What I'm trying to say is we have a clear forecheck, breakout, and solid neutral zone play. And I believe with every fiber of my being, we had no such thing with Stevens. Breakout especially.
