IMO not that similar. BB's strategy was an aggressive fore check but not dump in chase style. Plus BBs system gave dmen more leeway offensively/decision making out there. That being said I like the sounds of Eakins system. I'd like an aggressive fore check system. With the type of hockey the NHL has now it is getting harder and harder to 'score off the rush' type system. Plus with AO's speed apparently declining much rather him being in the offensive zone closer.
