Stubborn to the point of failure. You can even see the same "strategies" with Team Canada at the Worlds that he used with the Flames during the last few years. (sitting on a lead, running around all the time (aka puck pursuit), etc.)

He's someone who was blessed with a very good team in Red Deer, then again with a string of oustanding teams for the World Jrs. Then struggled when he got to the NHL. Brent's a mediocre coach at best - he is probably better suited for upper management in talent selection and might someday be a decent GM.

Flames just had it backwards - should have had Brent as GM and Darryl as Coach.
