Their is a clear drop in play and style of play when we have a lead.

For quite some time now this team has had a habit of getting too high of themselves and letting the opposition off the hook when they get a lead. It sure isn't because they're focusing too much on their defensive awareness 'cause they're getting scored on. To imply that Brent Sutter encourages the team to "shut it down" when they have the lead is nothing short of ridiculous. Just because he wants the team to play well defensively doesn't mean he doesn't want them to score.
