I am more annoyed that for another playoff season we've watched a highly ranked powerplay absolutely disappear.
I feel like this has happened every year post-lockout, and I keep hoping someday a coach will fix it. Maybe it's the players fault...
Also, Yawney sucks.
Playing devil's advocate, I'm not too sure if he's being outcoached (at least, if he is, it's by a very negligible margin).
If our players would execute on the powerplay, we would be waiting to play Vancouver already. I guess you could argue that our PP strategy was working for games 1-3, then Babcoock made an adjustment, and McLellan hasn't readjusted. But really, I say it's our players not executing, and Detroit's players doing just that.
