Who was the better coach?
Point taken, but I think generally, former players who make good coaches were hard workers, regardless of their talent level. Coming into the NHL Breezy was a hell of a talent, and IMO he never lived up to said talent. He looked as good as Desjardins coming into the NHL, but I never saw Breezy as the hardest worker out there, and therefore I think there's less likelyhood of him becoming a good coach. For instance, I think a guy like Bouillon, who is a very hard worker, but had far less talent than Breezy, might make a better coaching candidate down the road. A players work ethic, once he becomes a coach, tends to rub off on the players he coaches.

Look at our coaching staff right now. Carbo, Muller and Jarvis were all very hard workers as NHL players.
