without the clutch and grab in the neutral zone, quinn will have to make adjustments.
we've seen him get them to play good team defense in the past
what's encouraging he's talked about clamping down defensively this season, likely becuase of what happened vs hitchcock.
Big reason why last years team underachieved.You can't play sloppy defensively & expect to win a championship.Add a top 5 defencemen,You think the leafs would have won that series against the Flyers the way they played? i don't think so....not when your getting outshot & not playing good 5-on-5.
