To a certain extent, but I think it is a lot different to change an organization from a GM's perspective than from a coaching perspective. Pretty much every new coach is going to have a new system. Some changes will be made by Hextall, as can be expected with a new GM, but I doubt Snider would have hired Hextall to move away from the rough stuff kind of guys that the organization seems to love. It is certainly possible, but it just seems more likely that he was hired because Snider et al. know he'll continue at least in part in that direction.

We'll see.
