You can say it's a talent issue, I can't argue that, it does have some merit but to me, we're missing that beat up lunch box attitude we've come to identify with.
Thats a gfreat point it does not take a great deal of talent to forcheck. And the forecheck has disappeared. If they lose the puck the first thought now appears to get back to the blue line defensivley. Applying no pressure to get the puck back whatsoever.
