We have the pieces for a good PP IMO. I honestly believe that Newell Brown is the issue in that regard. But if you are thinking that way maybe Mark Streit?
Agreed. Brown, for whatever reason, refuses to adjust his game plan even mid-contest. That's the sign of weak coaching IMHO. A coach needs to be a man for all seasons and is required to always look for another tool in his arsenal. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn't but you can't refuse to alter your strategy. In war, for a field commander, that gets armies slaughtered.
I've been pretty vocal that Streit is the guy I want. International, big game experience and is solid on both sides of the puck. I consider his on-ice vision to be an A+. He isn't the most skilled player out there but he is one of the savviest.
