If the league is going to move towards a higher scoring game with less obstruction interference allowed, then I'm thinking that bigger more physical players are not going to be the ones that win games for you.

New Jersey has gotten a lot smaller over the past couple of seasons and the Flyers younger guns coming up through the ranks are more finesse than fire. You will always need to be more than a one dimensional team, but I would think that speed and offense will be things that teams look for going forward.

In terms of what the Rangers need to do to win in their division. I think the first thing is to focus on a team philosophy, and involve the coach more in terms of building that team approach. Drills in practice (instead of the freestyle favored by Sather), accountability on and off the ice and discipline instead of penalties.
