I stand corrected. I still don't believe that they were solely responsible and if players really are in charge of a PK then you can't blame the assistants. You can blame Tmac for giving them the responsibility, but I don't believe that it's that simple. It's more of a coaching tactic to give players responsibility and hold them accountable. If the coach is allowing the players to chose the system, then yes, he should be fired.

*****Finally, Handzus and Mitchell have been given extra responsibility for the team’s penalty kill unit as the Sharks look to improve on the 24th place finish of last season.
“It’s their team within a team,” McLellan said. “They’re in charge of it, they’re going to take the pulse.”
