His player selection leaves your head scratching. At one point he had a crazy 5-forwards Minor Atom powerplay going (that would get scored on short handed). He changes his lines continuously so no chemistry can be formed. His use of time outs is often questionable. I can remember one time in two years where he actually called a time out when appropriate and set up a play that worked. As someone else mentioned he definitely relies more on his reputation than actual tactics.
Does anyone know if they renewed his contract? Or is he done after this year?
I haven't heared that he has been extended. If he has another sucessful season I assume he will though. Unless he gets a AHL or NHL job he will probably be back.
