If it's something right now, it's underrated, 'cause nobody talks about us, or would expect this and we're 1st.....
I don't think it's a matter of being passive or aggressive, it's knowing the team you're playing against and adapting.
We were really passive last night against Colorado, cause you have to be. They have no big shot from the point, so we let them pass around the perimeter and took away the down low. Anytime there was a hint of trouble, all 4 guys were in the slot. It worked awesome.
Coaching is huge on special teams, and our staff excels at that part of the game. We've got mini-Carbo's out there. Active sticks, clogging up passing lanes and blocking shots.
And anyone who doubs whether Garth Murray has a place on this team should watch that game again. He was excellent on the PK. Much smarter player than he's given credit for.
