It has solely to do with the fact that he was a great head coach before in this league. One thing MacLean has over Cunneyworth is experience. We can speculate all we want about how Cunneyworth might be a great NHL head coach, but the fact is we don't know that for sure. I'd actually rather we give Cunneyworth a try, but just because someone is recognized as a top coaching "prospect", doesn't mean he is automatically going to make a good NHL coach.
Im sorry...what I meant to say is that MacLean was bad in Columbus, not here. I know it didnt work out well for him at the end here, but thats not why I wouldnt like to see him back here. I just think Cunneyworth deserves the shot, and I also think Hartley is just a better coach than him.
