How many young players are we going to 'botch' before we realize we have a cancer for a head coach/style of play?

AND, how is vision and puck patience a bad thing? If it is, then your system is flawed beyond belief.

What other idiot coach tells young players NOT to slow the play down???

This is truly insane.
Adjustments and "one offs" aren't in DB's dictionary. That's the downside of having a coach who is set in his ways and lacks the ability to change on the fly.

That's why it's been so frustrating to watch these post-season collapses because I feel like there were almost no adjustments whatsoever. Montreal, Tampa, and now Philly..

Sure, the system ensures that we will get every possible ounce of production from the grinders / non-skill players, but it's a trade off when it comes to the skill players who need a little more leeway.

To put it lightly, "Pittsburgh Penguins Ice Hockey" is a less than ideal system for young players who are still developing.
