It's not like he developed him in 10 games. Last season, you could already see shades of Greening we see today.

Cameron is running the PP apparently.

Seems to me like Maclean just manages to bring the best out of everyone, and this was probably true for the Red Wings as well. He's an asset and losing one like Detroit did is bound to have adverse effects on the team.

Also, one month into the season.

I'm pretty sure no matter who is running the powerplay, MacLean most likely brought the idea of having players screen the goalie.

I know its only one month in but the players seem to have confidence in MacLean and are not giving up on the game early like how they did last year with Clouston. If he can keep it up I think the Sens could make the playoffs.

Big part of the Wings struggling was MacLean leaving. Their powerplay used to be deadly now it looks like ours of last year with players standing still. It seems like right now their in a drought and hit rock bottom, but I think they will right the ship soon.

I think the genius part is that he actually get the players to do it, rather than talk about it.

I read an article in today's Metro about the culture change in Ottawa and how the players like Maclean so much they are all showing up early to practice and they're all staying late. Chris Neil said that with Clouston people waited til the very last second to hit the ice.
Finally, amateur coaching hour in Ottawa is over. Did you read this in the print version or online? I couldn't find it online today but you posted yesterday.

EDIT: Found the "archive" tab on the Metro site. Great article.
