Yes. I am saying perhaps, this team plays its best hockey when they are playing on the edge. If they are playing "safe" - safe is death (Torts). You have to play to your strengths, I have always thought this team is best when they are pushing the pace and playing on the edge with big hits (After Booth, Richards was lost for months when he wasn't hitting like he used to, he got it back in the playoffs), feeding from the crowd, taking the odd penalty for crossing the line, but still - playing on the edge.

The past couple of months, I haven't seen this team playing on the edge and therefore, they haven't been playing with passion and intensity. Based on the replys, I guess I am alone on this one. Guess everything is just fine how it is. We are in first afterall. With this style, I should have no problem getting onto a golf course in May. Sweet.
