As for Bryz, I haven't been following training camp so ill just wait and see. Even though we were desperate for a long term starter at the time it wasn't smart to sign a guy that hadn't proven himself outside Phoenix's system long-term. There weren't many options available though.
On paper it certainly doesn't seem to mesh with the system I agree and yeah the key is a good first pass but when teams like the Devils bum rush our D they are not mobile enough to even have a chance to get the first pass b/c we're running around like idiots trying to get puck possession. This is what concerns me but we have to see the actual product this year on the ice. Right now the setup seems counterintuitive.
