The same can be said on both sides, arguing opinions whether he is a good developmental coach is useless. It can't be proven since players develop on their talent alone, minor league and junior league instruction. Look at the old Habs teams, great farm team, it would be foolhardy to say Scotty Bowman was the only reason why their young players developed so well. NHL coaches in general get far too much credit when people say coach x is a great developemental coach. It's thrown out there far too easily.
