It looks easy enough but I'm not sold on their hockey sense and O zone play away from the puck generally. You'd hope that gets better thanks to playing with a quality puck possession/distributor center but we'll see. Bringing in Ribeiro should help foster more team play but not without the players around him changing their game a bit, buying in, reading off of him and working on becoming more effective away from the puck.

I like how New Jersey played, attacking the puck and creating chances from play down low but it's going to require working smarter and playing more aware than most of these players usually have.

I'd rather give the real Petr Sykora a chance.
