You lose the bet.

Cam Neely, Steve Yzerman, Ron Francis all play large roles in their teams management/coaching. None had any kind of experience other than being a player in the NHL.

The Montreal Canadiens established dynasty after dynasty by promoting former players into key management/coaching roles.

Please, instead of the monologues, address people's specific points.
