I recall reading about Terry Murray being one of the easier coaches to play for back when he was coaching the Flyers. He is known to be a player's coach. Rarely do you ever hear about him punishing players with a bag skate. The most controversial thing he's ever done is saying his team choked when they lost to Detroit in the 1997 Finals.

As for the ice surface being considered among the worst in the NHL, players have been saying this for years. I've skated on Anaheim's ice and it really is terrible. The arenas with the most amount of events and changeovers tend to be the ones that end up with the worst ice surface (MSG and Staples being two of the busiest arenas in the US). Notice that the best ice surfaces tend to be those that don't have as many events going on in there.
