They had crap for talent. He made a lot of those players play their best. Made Horcoff look like he was worth 5 mil. Not sure where Stoll and Greane would be without him.
He has done good work with team canada as well.
The years they missed the playoffs I would look more at lowe than towards MacT.
I would be interested to see how he is doing this year in the AHL.
