Dear Uncle Ron,

I write you here because I know you read these forums. Please now that you have gotten a Christmas contract, try to incorporate a more defensive style on at least some of your weaker lines. This would be fantastic.

-Regards

Detroit was the team I hated most growing up. 30+ years Leaf fan. Flying Red Wings flag is my protest to Ronnie. I would like him better if only he would change to a more defensive strategy! He has one of the best Defense lines in the league.

I do respect the Detroit teams, good product on the ice since they rebuilt in the late 80's early 90's? (with good ownership)

ok fair enough.

There are many threads about RW though. Let's keep this a GDT and keep the ronnie arguments to RW's threads.

This team is not built for playing defensive, the biggest asset this team has is speed and Wilson't system is perfectly suited for it.

Most of Kessel's goals are on the rush and playing defensive won't help his scoring or the other lines.

EDIT: Sorry just saw your warning.

Defensive zone? Offensive zone? Neutral zone? or Special teams?

That right there tells me how little you actually know about the topic.

Two most important aspects of a system are the breakout, and most important in my mind is the forecheck. Special teams are also important but to your credit you pointed that out, without differentiating from PP/PK.

So let's talk about Wilson's forecheck and penalty killing, since that seems to be your gripe.

What is it? What do you think it should be? Again.. as specific as possible. I'm really looking forward to your analysis on Wilson's system because you seem to know much more about it.

Go Leafs Go! Let's hope the first powerplay unit can actually look organized tonight. They sucked against the Panthers IMO.

I hope we can win the next 2 games. Otherwise we might start 2012 out of the playoffs.

Carolina needs better home/away sweaters to match the niceness of their alternates (while I find the colour scheme pleasant, the design just doesn't do anything for me).
