Yeah, I can see that.. but there aren't too many coaches out there that can balance offense and defense the way Q does, when he gets a team to play the right way. It is a mixed bag though, because you do need players that are willing and able to buy into both sides of the puck.

Q's had a lot of good two-way players at his disposal in Chicago. Toews, Hossa, Sharp, Bolland, Ladd, Madden, Kruger, Frolik, Saad, etc..

In Toronto, I don't think their forwards would have the same commitment. I could see Lupul.. but I couldn't see Kadri, Kessel, MacArthur, JVR, etc. really buying in from what I've seen.
