This seems to be the guiding principle behind Tallon's moves since taking over. This team lacks fire because players are too comfortable. By loading the system with players, he figures to increase competition top to bottom. Ellerby, Guds and to a lesser extent Garrison will have to battle for a chance on NHL ice. No gimmes.
