This is pretty poor advice.

Squats and deadlifts are excellent exercises, especially if power, strength and mass are your primary goals while sacrificing endurance.

P90X is different. It attempts to balance endurance, strength and power by sacrificing mass.

P90X is not inferior - just like a squat and deadlift program is not inferior. They merely emphasize different goals.

In my view, for hockey, P90X is actually a more balanced program with far more varied exercises that mimic many of the movements required in a game.
