Yes, I'm kidding people.
McDavid or Draisaitl would do
I'd rather hire an unorthodox coach with no track record who happens to be buddies with the GM than hire a recycled mediocrity who we know in advance will be awful who happens to be a buddy of the GM.I don't think he's a distraction, I just think he was lucky enough to be Kent Hughes's friend.
That was his main attribute. Anytime someone gets hired for a position they were never interested in applying for, I usually have some questions about it.
Martin St. Louis never applied for the job. I don't think he was even interested in the job. Kent Hughes just searched him out because they had talked at the rink a bunch of times.
What are his untested coaching philosophies, btw? I don't think he's doing any actual coaching. That's what the assistants are there for.
Toe Blake famously said that once you start listening to what the fans want you soon wind up sitting in the stands with them.this the result of a fuck the fans mentality
Main thing is so far , no moves are patch bandaids making the rebuild worseThe answer is that like most experiments, we have no idea if the MSL experience will work.
We also have no idea if Hughes will be a good GM — sure, he has shown that he can trade both solid vets and cap space for futures, but that’s the easy part of the job and not a permanent assignment
