Along with having no coaching experience, Ryan Walter seems to be a Goody Two Shoes and totally out of place as a Canuck assistant coach. But I suppose Mr. All Knowing Gillis thinks this is another of his brilliant moves that only he understands.
What you don't know is that Walter has always been respected among his peers when he was a player. He was a player with a lot of heart.
I am not sure how this will transfer into being a good assistent, but who knows.
