Sutter on what he told the players in a meeting prior to practice:
"I told them I wasn't going to be disruptive to their X and O's and their system that's in place, I just think there are parts that we can tweak."
So he plans on running the same system?
It is too difficult to say the same thing 50 times in 50 different ways We are and have been one of the best defensive teams for a while now. The orders given by Lombardi is to not lose any of that and to still gain more offense. All-in-all I wouldn't change the defensive structure either, it ain't broke, just have to tweak the offense. He hinted at the wingers needing to step up, he has re-adjusted the lines for speed and forechecking, let's see how well he can tweak it so that the puck ends up in the back of the net 3 times a night.
"I think part of his game is he’s over aggressive at times, which I like. We’ll tame that. I’d rather tame a lion than paint stripes on the kitty cat." - Dean Lombardi discussing Brayden McNabb
