I got some heat at the time for saying it but what everyone likes about DS is the fact that he coaches his team before during and after a game.

With TM he just sent his players out on the ice and "let them be accountable". He NEVER out coached a single team. He had success and was a good teacher as long as it wasn't during a game.

DS asks his players to be accountable and then holds HIMSELF accountable for guiding them through whatever it takes to succeed. Sure he will call a player or two out at times but that too is part of the process. Especially when he calls himself out too.

Sure is nice to have someone at the helm who at least is constantly working with the team to win the game.
