I don't know if you could call it an ego problem but he does like his players to play within the system laid out for them , if they dont buy in they sit it's that simple , he is the boss and they had better play his game , around here the fans have called it "HUNTER HOCKEY" for years , even some of the broadcasters from other teams have made the statement over the air "WE ARE BEING TREATED TO SOME OLD FASHONED HUNTER HOCKEY" , he has an astounding winning percentage in the OHL around .688 or .699 , close to .700 .
I think the most successful coach in NHL history had the same philosophy , play within the system or sit , his name was Scotty Bowman ..
PS :: I looked up his wining percentage , it is .691 ...
