He probably had one of the most offensive mindsets in the league, but he isn't very good at adopting...

He needs creative centers and players overall who can hold onto the puck.

You need to remember that Renney developed his "philosopy" when rebuilding Hockey Canada's approch gooing into International Tournaments. Its a system designed to work with handpicked players.

In NY Slats really tryed to get him thooes type of players -- but failed miserably. I definitly thought Chris Drury would fit in really well, but after seeing him a week in NY it was obvious that he definitly was the worst center we had, worse then Betts, at gooing deep and collecting a puck. Like a classic center ability that he just couldn't carry out in the NHL.

He needs D's who can move the puck, Redden can pass the puck but never trys to skate with it if their isn't a passing option available.
