Pete has laid out such a solid foundation that nearly any (not all) player can be thrown out onto any line and situation and know what they have to do.

Regardless of the 1-3-1 and the defense Tampa had to work with, there was no real set structure in place. A real lack of systemic basics to fall back on when anything failed.

They're a hard team to watch when they're losing. They're offense has the ability to throw a lot at you, obviously, but Pete has laid the groundwork for a really sound 5-man unit.

It always feels like a bunch of individuals trying to make peace with each other when they're out on the ice.

Granted, that would be hard to infer by my initial statement. But there are about 1,000 other things I've hated about watching Tampa games during the short stinted Boucher era.
