I somewhat disagree. Carbo is a good coach, but he still has a lot to learn to be a good one. Vigneault, Therrien and Julien all started in Montreal and now they know how to win games in this league because they have more experience.
I remember Lindy Ruff when he first came in as a coach in Buffalo, at first they didnt give him much time to last at this level but Buffalo stuck with him and it paid off bigtime. Carbo is a very intelligent guy but right now, he's too stubborn. The way i look at the way he coaches, he thinks he has the right system in place and that he cannot do more and that the players need to execute. Carbo needs to give an identity to his team and hes not there yet.
Like Ruff, with time, he'll be more open and be one of the best coach in the league.
