Yelling at another player ON YOUR team to pass the puck to you: bush league or no?

We got a new coach last week who is a pretty experienced player (Midget AAA, College hockey, English Premier League) and if we are not constantly shouting at each other he will stop the drill and make us start over. Communication is so key to playing effectively. Without it you can be 5 individually world class players but until you can communicate effectively on the ice you will never be able to play as a good team.
The only thing I would say in relation to the OP is that as well as shouting whenever you want the pass you must also always be shouting when you don't want the pass to make it clear. If you skate around silently how is the puck carrier meant to know who is open and who isn't and where everyone is all the time, it leads to sloppy play and turnovers.
