If the coach is allowing the players to chose the system, then yes, he should be fired.
I am pretty sure they chose it. They were running a passive box across all 3 PK pairs. When the coaches stepped in, Pavs/Marleau was reunited and JP/PM were a little more aggressive on the box. It's the other two or three pairs where I am seeing passive box and 1-1-2. I was hoping to see a bit more playing around with diamond against umbrella PP's and otherwise aggressive box.
