If the PP is not working how he wants to work it, then he needs to change it around, or change the personnel around, or change the way he allocates the PP ice time. Not go out there with the same group of give night-in and night-out and wait until the same PP gets it right finally. He did change it around, and it seemed to get better - I credit Renney for the better PP of late, not the players involved in it.
I agree wholeheartedly Fletch. As to the point I was trying to make earlier, while Renney is not really a good strategist in game, he seems to have a good feel for talent, and in that regard, maybe he should be moved upstairs and a new coach brought in at some point. He has had alot of strategic failures wether its lineups or in game adjustments, he just seems to be lacking in those areas. I think guys like Ruff and Nolan not only get the most out of their players, they also make the necessary adjustments to lineups etc in game.
