Apologies for my delayed reply. As I don't have a lot of time to post, I'll try to comment on some of the topics that have already been addressed, and give some general comments of my own. I'll do these in separate posts to make it easier on the reader and just in case I run out of time... Shero and Kelly Here is what I posted when I drafted Shero as coach, which conveniently also has some comments about NJ's coach, Joel Quenneville: So, Shero is strict about sticking to a system, but I see no reason why that system can't involve defensemen rushing the puck. Shero's innovation and adoption of some Soviet techniques show that he's not afraid to try different things. Chicago had a rushing type of Dman on each pair (Kelly/Boucher/Subban), which I will admit the insertion of Red Dutton eliminates on the 3rd pairing, but I think the benefits of that lineup change are worth it, those two have enough skill to move the puck "by committee", and in a Finals series the top-4 will get the lion's share of the minutes, especially Red Kelly. A quick side-note on NJ's D: Considering the above mentioned issues Quenneville has with rushing Dmen, will there be some conflict with Harry Cameron?
