Also, I think a coach like RC who for example stresses a strong forecheck game will wind up with less high pressure situations in his own zone thus reducing stress on the defense and potential injury from shot blocking and hard forechecking from the opposing team. As I said, and I'll stress again, this is only a theory of mine and there's is no real empirical evidence to support it, but I do feel it does have some merit.
