I'm not saying the coaches are blameless on the PP. I believe as others have said about zone entry and whatnot, but the PP is fluid and the players on the ice have the ability (or should have) to pull defenders out of position, get shots through etc. Bobbling passes, getting pressured or outworked in the corners and such is all on them.
With the importance of special teams, there are times when I think teams should practice the PP and Pk exclusively.
