Nashville Predators new look on defense

First let me say Brookbank and Schnabel > Hulse and Houlder, no matter what the fans from other teams think right now, they'll see I'm right in a couple of weeks. The question will remain can Zidlicky, Eaton and Hamhuis replace Skrastins and Delmore? I believe the answer is yes. Here is what Scott Walker had to say about our new defense.

Q: With so many young defensemen on the roster, will forwards be called on to help out more than normal on defense with forechecking and things like that?

A: " I think you play less defense if you’re in their zone, so hopefully we can use our speed to create a lot of offensive chances and stay out of our end. Just because they’re young defensemen doesn’t mean they’re not good. I think all these young players here are quality defensemen. They’ve all played it their whole lives. I don’t think there should be too much made about their age because if they’re playing in the NHL they’re quality defensemen. "
I think you play less defense if you’re in their zone

This is what we've been trying to say all along isn't it.
