Cunneyworth is terrible. I've yet to hear a serious defense of his coaching ability.

Under him, the Habs went from a team that had trouble putting away teams after dominating play to a team that has trouble getting out of their own zone. The structure is completely gone, the approach is completely simplistic and utterly predictable, the personnel management is completely ham-fisted, the coaching philosophy is hopelessly naive and founded on discredited cliches rather than actual winning hockey. There is no transition and in a game that hinges on puck possession Cunneyworth apparently demands systematically giving up the puck by chipping it ahead. Small wonder the results follow.
