You can always be faster for sure.

But I was just speaking to Monahan becoming "a different player". Has to be off the perimeter and into the muck more doesn't it?

To be honest I think the Colorado series was mostly between the ears. They got burned by McKinnon, the dmen starting backing in too much and the team lost their gap for transition.
