With Martin, the team was going through the motions because they had to play his passive system.

Coaching matters. This season shows it
Well, I can see that along with these things, this team is definitely more "technically proficient" than they EVER were under Martin as well. PK is already reining in some of the stupid decisions that he is prone to making in the past. Passes from everybody is tape-to-tape, and are made very deliberately. Fellow players put themselves in good position to receive passes. And the guys are crashing the net far more than they ever did under Martin. Hell, even Tomas Kaberle has started shooting the puck, something he was averse to doing ever since he was traded to Boston.
