There’s a quote from author John C. Maxwell which states: “If something can be done 80% as well by someone else, delegate!”
Those words of wisdom apply to many things, but NHL coaching isn’t one of them.
Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy isn’t a delegator when it comes to his power play; having the man advantage run at only 80% of its total potential efficiency might have the 56-year-old scowering LinkedIn looking for a new job.
Cassidy takes a lot of pride in the Bruins power play and has been striving for greatness on special teams since he was drafted 18th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in 1983. During his 14 year pro career, which included time in the AHL, IHL, NHL & Italy, Cassidy quarterbacked the power play. When he moved into coaching, he wasn’t willing to give up running it.
During his recent Virtual Hockey Summit presentation, Cassidy went into detail about his love for the power play, outlining principles that can lead to success.
