As witnessed this past weekend in a couple of games I was able to attend, the passing was much crisper, the defenses a little stingier, and the offenses much more creative with their plays, scoring with precision. There was also more use of transition plays, keeping their opponents defenses guessing most of the game.

But to actually attend an NLL game (albeit pre-season) had fans in absolute euphoria this past weekend.
