Article states: "Physical in today’s game doesn’t mean what it meant in the Bad Boys era – their games would require four hours now between foul calls and replays for “hostile acts” – but it is no less required to win."
Some of us have said that already here and the article goes on, points to Miami as a "defensive" team
Casey quote: "Playing that style is the most important thing,” he said. “That style of toughness, physicality, taking charges. We worked on taking charges probably for the first time in my coaching career in a long time (at team camp). We did it early in my time in Toronto – getting used to contact, enjoying contact, the flesh-to-flesh contact you’ve got to have to win in today’s game. That’s Miami, that’s Boston.”
Here's hoping it's not all post mini-camp glow & pr cause this team needs to build a identity and rep for working hard.
Winning will come if we get talented, hard working guys. Not just talent.
