Sorry- I went off on a tangent.
Having Ed there to bring leadership and help build a winning culture means that it wasn't there or it existed in small batches. That is the only caution I would issue; when a team changes philosophy (HC, GM and Key personnel) then you can institute a new culture. Not sure that adding a few pieces will- not saying it can't
, but usually it is passed on from teammates after it is already established.
Ed does his own thing in the off-season. Maybe he changes that this year to help out the new team, maybe not...
We will see.
