Thank you for the video; it only supports my point. Notice the backchecking forward putting pressure on the puck carrier, allowing the defense-men to stay up. Notice also the small-gap created between the backchecking forwards (all of them) and the D. It's the gap between teammates that is important. It needs to be small to create support in both defense and offense.

Notice also the D are between the dots!

For Phaneuf: Quick feet means quick turns, transition and acceleration.

The Leafs' issue is the goaltending. Look what the poor goaltending is doing to Jake Gardiner's development. Look what it did to Luke Schenn. It's even having a negative affect on a great player like Phaneuf!
