Wings Thinking Differently

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
There is also going to be a change in the way the Wings play at certain times. The Oilers' trapping prevented the Wings from playing their puck-possession style, so coach Mike Babcock wants to be ready with a chip-and-chase option. "We think we can be a very hard-working team that plays with real good pace, that moves the puck from the back end -- but in saying that, we'd like to become a harder fore-checking team, too," Babcock said. "When we're in a situation where we're unable to carry it in and have possession, (we want to) lay it in and go get it and be a harder fore-checking team. We won't play like that all the time, but we want to have an alternative if what we do is taken away."
much more...including why Hasek...
