Del Zotto has hit the 9 goal mark twice in his career. I don't see why suddenly reaching that mark under Vigneault would be indicative of a change in system.
Torts made everyone afraid to end up on the wrong side of the puck. You can say pinch, pinch. But then when you get caught and it leads to a tongue lashing you will not pinch agressively and we didn't under Torts. Hopefully, DZ will have more room to make some mistakes in the interest of generating more offense.
