It sounds like Yingst wants them to get faster and tougher to play against, which falls in line with moves made during last season. The D looks pretty well set for the most part but I'm not sure it's tough enough overall and they're still going to need to get quicker and more skilled up front.
Here's one opinion from a writer who used to cover the AHL as his main beat:

‏@pwilliamsNHL

"Haviland is an excellent hire by the Caps for Hershey. It would have been interesting if he had gotten Jets' head-coaching job two in 2011."

"That talented and young supporting cast in Chicago? Haviland's fingerprints are all over that."
