Perhaps that what Burns thinks. And he ended up with the worst powerplay in the league as a consequence.

Burns teams never had good powerplays though. At least not relative to the talent. The same can be said for most of the defense-first coaches out there. With the notable exceptions of Lemaire and Martin ... who out of the blue shifted philosophy a lot last year.
