We are easily the fastest team in the division, only Vancouver and Anaheim can keep up in my opinion. That might not mean much, but if Eakins can get our guys playing a good speed based game that doesn't result in us being crushed all game, we will see some improvement.
Hall and Yak together didn't really show me too many issues with regards to size. They looked well and pushed the pace. Next is to find a 2nd line that can do it.

I don't know that Yak even needs to take a step forward. He just needs to be given the time like he was at the end of the year to be effective.
