The Caps responded to BB fairly quickly when he came on board. The Ducks have apparently picked up on BB's system in the same amount of time that Hunter's had to teach his troops. If the problem is personnel, then I don't think any amount of time is going to fix things. If that is indeed the case, DH needs to be flexible and make some changes that give the current squad the best chance to succeed.
Hannan actually sat for a game to learn, and then ran around for a good 10+ before he sorted out our zone D. Was that a Woods defense?
I think it was in place to help make Sarge fit in.
I think looking back to the philly game Nick OT GWG, that its easy to coach up a team to go attack, do what you think is right, foot on the neck. At least easier than trying to restrain/retrain a team that had failed doing that after 4 years.
Does anyone know, is BB now running zone D out in Anaheim?
