I totaly agree, but adding to that is a `sloppyīBack-checking. The speed that Philly had while under Hitch, and the first years of Laviolette. The switch from offensive zone to the deffensive zone is not the same now a days. I belive that may have something to do with the Richards trade, But! he is just one player.
I recall even the 1st game of the playoffs against the pens last season that I told my friends that I was watching the game with that "even the 9 year olds I coach has better speed and positioning switching from O to D " and the sloppyness got much worse in the NYD series...
