That is his MO and one of the reasons why I believe we always come up short under his watch. Lack of direction and vision...too timid to either blow it up or put all his chips on the table.
McPhee is that arrogant that he believed he could win in the postseason with inexperienced goalies and inexperienced players playing key minutes. After all it's worked in the regular season for him. It built him a franchise that sells out regularly. If you're calling it a half hearted rebuild, then realize that's the system McPhee is going to run from here on out. In theory it should result in a regular playoff team. I'm convinced GMGM sees every season as a roll of the dice. He's going to crap out a lot come April/May, but he's always in the game and praying his team gets hot one postseason.

Not sure how the team is supposed to have a killer instinct/mentality when it's GM doesn't.
