Not so sure about that S&S. Tippett had them playing the old Left Wing Lock system pretty proficiently. Makes for boring hockey, but is just about the only defence/strategy one has when facing opponents with a lot more speed & firepower. Tons of players capable of playing it that way currently in the AHL & NHL of course. Signed relatively cheaply. Throw in a few agitator types who have worn out their welcomes elsewhere. Backed by excellent goaltending which theyve had formerly with Bryz & now with Smith. Bobs yer Uncle.
