Go for it...was pretty regularly reported during games last year how the bench was operating. You have an assistant running forwards...and an assistant running the defense.
It isn't as if you've provided a single tangible fact for anything you've ever said on these boards...and the one time you offered to previously prove your point...you were wrong. I'll await.
But, if I were you, I wouldn't get so cocky when you have yet to be right about anything.
Again, how many practices have you attended? How many times have you been in the Flyers offices to see the exact approach of how Stevens runs the team? You don't know how hands on Stevens is or isn't. Berube has responsibilties for Coaching the PK. Mullen for the PP. All Head Coaches delegate responsibilities to the Assistants.
That doesn't mean that the Head Coach doesn't have a hand in it.
You stated earlier that there's too much going on during a game for the Head Coach to do it all. Do you know who was the first NHL Head Caoch to hire Assistant Coaches?
Never said he didn't. I said he doesn't deserve credit for its success. If you have a guy putting 95% into something, he deserves the credit...not the guy that told him to go do it.
