I still laugh thinking about Vigneault's strategy of getting the puck to O'Byrne and then having his forecheckers block all passing lanes. In one game last year they literally surrounded him, one guy even doing a spin to avoid actually hitting him. It was a brilliant tactic that worked to a T--the Avs offense completely sputtered that night.

Still can't believe there's a guy on Twitter who says both Zanon and O'Byrne have great puck skills. I'm thinking about blocking the guy because of asinine statements like that.
