My apologies if this has been mentioned, since I didn't read through the entire thread, but one big difference I have noticed is we're not trapped in our zone as much. This team doesn't defend as well, but the more liquified system prevents us from getting trapped in our own zone for minutes at a time. That was a game-changer under Torts. We would get pinned and dominated for long stretches on a game-by-game basis.
I mean, I don't think we're as bad defending as people make us out to be. There are more breakdowns sometimes, but I guess that's what happens when you don't play a 100% defensive style and they probably aren't the experts at this style as they were in Torts that they played under for a long time. I also think part of the reason they're not pinned in their zone is because of their play inside their zone.
