In order to play the Red Wings style of old we had one of the best, if not the best, puck moving/PP QB/Dman in the league for a stretch of 10-12 years. We then surronded him with other dman who had no problem moving the puck and getting a quick transition game going.
The best way to get back to the style would be trading for Brian Campbell, Keith Yandle or someone of that elk. Personally I would trade for Campbell as he would take less to get and is the best transitional dman in the game.
