I think they tried Phaneuf and Gunnarsson as the shut down, and without the forwards doing their part it doesn't work.

I doubt you'll see Carlyle accepting the defensive efforts Wilson did from the first line. I think Steckel played a bigger role once Carlyle arrived.

Skating is still going to be a huge part of their game but it is going to be in both directions.

He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
