Low risk/low reward kinda guy.
Very defensive.
Very conservative.
Prefers veterans to youth.
Gives a lot of opportunities to the old guys to proove themselves wrong.
Young guys will have to proove themselves during training.
Likes to use a passive/defensive 3rd/4th line when he feels his team lacks talent.
Not very imaginative. Not very flexible. Like to use "safe" strategies.
Has been known to use offensive duos with a "defensive wing" stopgap.
Defensemen will not pinch.
Likes to sit back and use a "counterattack" approach.
Young guys who make mistakes will get killed. They will have to backcheck HARD.
Will prefer safe, uncreative players to creative but defensively unreliable guys.

That's it I guess.
Pretty accurate.
