It sounds like the players were never taught much of anything from the previous coaches defensive wise and it would make sense, as most nights, they were outshot and out played. This year though, many games they haven't been out shot and out played, so it is working. But, since it wasn't wired into their heads about the defensive side of the puck all these years, it's going to take time.
When he found that out why does Steve Smith still have his job?!
