It reminds me of when Hanlon tried to do something similar.
It's sapping a player who is already pressing.
You're a bit scattered there.
If "Boudreau trying to make him kill penalties looked like a colossal mistake from the get-go", then it can't "(have) nothing to do with it."
Playing the extra shifts is something he'll adapt to, and he'll be a better player for it.
And, the team will benefit.
