"I am a defence-first coach," Eakins explained. "I want the players to contest the puck when we don't have it in all zones. For me, the second best way to defend is to have the puck and be a real strong cycle team. When we don't have the puck we are at full speed trying to get it back. And when we do get it back, we're not looking to kill you off the rush; we're looking to get the puck down deep and wear you down by hanging on to the puck looking for our scoring chances that way.
Hey, that sounds familiar! If we're hanging on to Iginla, this is an awful idea.
