He won't always make the subtle moves, but a lot of his hunches are right more often than wrong. He doesn't like defenseman who like to move up the rink with the puck themselves (see: Ballard) but I think he will be relying on McD and Girardi to be his #1 shut-down pair (as any sane coach would be). He likes to run a dump and chase, cycle game that crashes the net I think so I think he will let Nash, Brassard, and Callahan be more creative in the offensive zone too.
Overall, great move here by the Rangers. Really excited what he can do for this team.
