Based on that, I don't know that Carlyle's style would be a good thing - it sounds like a complete switch from what Ruff and Rolston have been teaching and implementing with the current organization.
That's fine. We can disagree. What intrigues me more about Carlyle has been the Duck'ss physical style of play over the years. I think Randy's had some influence on that noting that the Ducks have a lot big bodies on the team. I'm a fan of the cycle and might suggest that the offensive system Ruff and Rolston implemented to date hasn't struck me as having had a tremendous payoff at this point.
