It's an aggressive fore-check where the players are supposed to go hard after the puck, puck carrier, be defensively responsible etc. For the most part they have been doing it right(they have a strong defensive stat to prove it), they just haven't been able to execute the offense part of it properly, this is due to a # of things like our youth and in-experience. You guys like to think that Burke thinks that this is some great team that is going to accomplish great things this year, guess what, he doesn't, he knows about the scoring woes, but what did you expect from such a young team? Also, unlike you Burke's main focus isn't on what draft pick he gave up, it's about his team and what he can do to improve it without hurting the roster to much(ie giving up young players/prospects in trades), his focus is also to let this team play, develop and grow together.

A "run n gun" system is not defensively responsible and if we were playing it like most of you like to think then our defensive stats would be much worse and we'd be getting blown out every loss!
