Well, let's look at it in terms of skating and our playoff lineup of last year vs right now.

Pyatt, Asham, Dorsett returning from injury, Powe/Clowe/Newbury/Haley at various times, Kreider of last year, Richards of last year

Pouliot, Miller, in game condition and timing Dorsett, Moore, Kreider of this year, Richards of this year.

I know which group skates better. You're talking about improving the skating of half the forward corps.

Edit: Don't get me wrong. We are definitely playing a more aggressive game and attacking the puck more. But the truth is that this team is better suited for that kind of game than last year's team was to begin with.
