More reading re: Renney and the Power Play from Ansar KHAAAAAAN!!!
The Edmonton Oilers went from 27th in the NHL on the power play in Renney's first season as their head coach in 2010-11 to third last season...
“We really made the net the focal point,'' Renney said. “You can over-pass the puck on the power play to the point where you have diminishing returns.
How many times have we seen too many passes, and players trying to get too fancy on the PP. Hopefully Renney helps these guys move past that mindset.
Our objective was to get it to the net as quickly as we could, create chaos at the net and really come in hard for rebounds.
“What I find interesting is how your skill can take over when you start taking that approach. Then you’ve got guys that can do some pretty significant things when they start attacking the net.''
Attack the net, create chaos. I like the sound of that. There's more to read in the article. Worth a read, for sure.
