I don't think he'll abandon the team identity, but I think we'll see him expand the structure to allow a bit more creativity on offense.
i can live with our 5 on 5 play being the same effective "wear em down and grind em out" stuff.... really i can. opening things up on the 5 on 5 against some of these run and gun teams just scares me.

i would however like to see us attack more with the man up. i think with this group of forwards, we can finally put some pressure on a pk unit both with our speed on the rush and with our offensive talent, and in a settled puck control pp situation (and gaby on the correct side of the ice !!), we could be quite scary.
