Yes we could play a different style but we need to remember sometimes you need to coach the players you have.

I much rather see Smyth, Handzus and Stoll dump the puck in than try to make a move with their lack of foot speed or stick handling at the blueline.
Well............ i would call this a huge different.
Not to have a Kopitar, Doughty, Johnson or Brown makes a complete different hockey team. All they have is a lot of Stolls.
What do you mean by "you need to coach the players you have".Brown, Simmonds, Kopitar, Richardson, Johnson,Doguthy are all faster skaters than what Nashville have.

Nashville's coach and our talent would be deadly...........
