Not really. That's why there's such an overturn of coaches in the league. Bruce Boudreau tried to do that, got fired, the Caps brought in a coach to do what Boudreau was trying to do, left, and brought in a coach whose system would be of benefit to the players. Players are supposed to adapt to the coach, if that's not happening it's on the GM to do something about it. Hence, why it was smarter to change the coach in the off-season, because it's going to happen anyways.
