more on the last point...those guys have speed. We were able to the puck up ice quickly because of that. No reason we shouldn't be able to play something similar with the guys we have. Cullen, Stalberg, Bourque, Legwand...all guys that have speed to burn. Also helps to have guys on the back end not afraid to make a long pass, and a good one at that.
Now on the flip side of that, that was a year or two post lockout and now schemes and players have adjusted.
