Didn't Detroit recently win a Cup playing the left wing lock? It's not like Chicago, your 2010 and 2013 champs, play a conservative style either.

There is no "must-play-to-win" style. What matters most is building the strongest all-around team to give them the best overall chance at competing for the Cup.

Saturday night, I like to raise a little harm. I'll sleep when I'm dead.
