My favorite part of this is the quotes from Blashill which are probably just going to make fans mad:

"I think one of the hardest things to do for young players is to learn how to be offensive within the system and to play winning hockey," Blashill said. "What's winning hockey? Winning hockey is making sure you manage your risk, that you don't take unneeded risk, that you manage that risk-reward.”

...

"What happens when a coach is pointing out a lot of mistakes or you might be sitting out shifts because of mistakes is you lose your confidence. It's just part of the process of developing, it really is," Blashill said. "I think as last season went along, he learned to play that complete game that is going to make him successful and he regained his confidence. I really saw that at the World Championship, so I expect Dylan to hit the ground running this year."
