I'm interested in what you guys are saying. I'm currently planning my training for an upcoming cut where maintaining strength will be a major goal.
From what I've read and tried (a little), you can drop volume and keep weights heavy to maintain strength.

Steve is going to have to find a good balance because you don't want to keep dialing back intensity as you lower food or your net calories might basically break even....

Hypothetical example:

3000 kcals ingested - 3200 kcals burned lifting heavy = 200 kcal deficit

2000 kcals ingested - 2200 kcals burned lifting light/moderate = 200 kcal deficit

You could sacrifice strength for an almost meaningless change in calorie exchange...
