I probably should research this "Like on You Tube" before writing about it , but it just came to me.

I was watching "My Red Wings" the other night(and it could be any other them at this point.)and realized that the style of hockey that is being played goes back to the time when the Russians came over in 72. I believe that was the year.

Here is what took place back then. The "R" would rush up the ice and the pass the puck back to their defencemen. They would circle around go up and back again and only go over the blue line in the opposition's area when they were certain they had control to make a play. This was not heard of in our system. We would get the puck and it was straight up the ice to make a play and score if possible. We (back then)would never think of passing it back in our own zone only to rush forward.
Anyone who lives hockey think I'm on the right track?
