Will his new system expose our young D?
Will Hank be able to hold up to more odd man rushes, better chances, etc IF that new system is implimented and one of the unfortunate results are those things?

I think he ws the best hire (probably) that we could have made, but I'm not as yet convinced it'll make a huge difference... I am VERY hopeful it will.

So, I (we) wait and see.
Bolded is something I'm particularly interested in. On the other hand, it will also be worth noting how Lundqvist performs considering he's going to see more shots. Both in the sense that he will literally SEE more (as in vision wise) as Rangers players won't be diving in front of him all the time, and that with less shot blocking, more shots will be hitting the net. This past season the Rangers gave up 28.2 shots a game, which was 11th lowest in the league. The year before, it was 27.8, 6th fewest.
