we are working the puck in well and setting up well, now we need to do all that but when we get set up deep we need to change it up and catch them napping and take it hard and fast to the net, really hard and fast and direct when they think we will be setting up for the passes as we have been, so enter the zone and set up the same, make a few little pases but as soon as we have 3 men deep everyone collapse to the net together and take the puck into the mess of sticks and bodies in front of the net and try and get a couple garbage goals.
we don't need grit, we need possession. Detroit was never a gritty team post-lockout, still they were considered contenders year after year, because they are possession fiends. that's what we need for this team, need badly. looks like only Maggie has this nose for controlling the puck on our team.
