- Defensive system: cut the ice in two, defensive zone cover, overload type: only 1 guy on the opposite side, the 4 other guys jamming the short (in French: premier poteau = 1/3 of the rink's width) side. He likes this strategy because it should help our not so good (I agree with his evaluation) D squad.

Just to be clear: that's what he saw on the ice in Brossard; this is not his suggestions.
I noticed a lot of puck support and use of the boards on breakouts. Defensively too, lots of support.
