Things of note:

1. " Run-and-gun hockey may appeal to the media but more and more teams are switching to the defense-first game. These include the Rangers, Islanders and Red Wings, among others.

As one team official tells us, “We want to be more like the Devils – a better checking team.” "

Ok, Rangers I can see. But didn't the Isles trap under Lavvy? Also calling Detroit a run-and-gun team is like calling the Rangers a trapping team. Detroit has been using the left-wing lock for how many years now?
Laviolette is no longer their coach and their new guy I think is a defense first coach.
