Interesting quote from Penguins forward Beau Bennett, buried right at the bottom of a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette story on the Pens’ preseason, which kicks off tonight at home versus Detroit.
Bennett was asked about the system of his new coach, Mike Johnston, compared to the one his old coach, Dan Bylsma, employed.
“It’s less strict,” Bennett said. “It’s more, ‘Let your talent and let your poise and patience take over.’
“You have to trust that instead of, in your mind, dumping the puck at a certain point, or having to put it in one corner or the other all the time.
“It’s nice having a little more freedom, in that regard, especially for the creativity that’s on our team.”"
