If thats not what you mean't I apologize.
Only partly his fault. He should tell skill players to play their game, but he should also lead by example / verbally to other players on the team who should play with grit and have shied away from that style as of late. Not asking for too much.
More fault lies on the coaching team if they obviously realize physicality is a weak point in this team. While bringing in McGrattan definitely brings in some of that element, it's very important to have that kind of play spread over 75% of your lines. This team should emulate the play of the Kings / Boston if possible.
Don't rely on one player for any one aspect of your team game, that's all.
