Paul Maurice Tightened up 'Canes Defensively

In a chat Puck Daddy recently had with Cam Ward, Ward revealed that the biggest improvement Paul Maurice brought to the team when he took over was in the defensive end:

It's been an improvement in our own zone. The guys have made my job a lot easier. We've been kind of known as a run and gun team in these last couple of years. We scored a lot of goals but we also gave up a lot of goals. Since Paul stepped in, we've really tightened up defensively and, in my eyes, we have a very underrated defensive lineup.

But don't worry, the Avs didn't interview Maurice. Because really, how can you trust someone outside the organization? They might want to "shake things up" or bring "systems" to the table.
