Everyone wondered if the Blues would show the same signs under Hitchcock that the Jackets eventually did (incredible defensive play that's unsustainable in the long-term), wonder if that's what's happening here.

But you might have a point about the players taking the system for granted and not doing the things that make it successful. Will be interesting to keep an eye on them this year.
