You build out from the net, out through D, and up through Centers. You build a culture of "hard to play" defensive structure "D-First" team. Then you add the up tempo, puck attack style to that structure. This is where we are now. We're just adding that to the mix. It's a tough transition. And it cost Murray his job. Sutter is getting it done.
Now it's up to the players.
