Laviolette's style, or system, of play is pretty simple. Pressure the puck, create turnovers, and play a solid team defense in your own zone which can result in a good breakout up the ice and transition the puck with crisp, but simple, passing.

The problem is they have guys who think they need to be creative to make a difference, but it is more about the individual effort and winning the one on one battles which take precedence over the Flyers "depth in scoring". Without an honest effort from every player this team can have 15 20 goal scorers and they will not make it out of the first round.
