I've been trying to figure out what an "A" would be, and I think an "A" would have just been making the playoffs.

Honestly, I think when you consider he didn't have James Neal, Brad Richards, or a 30 goal scoring Brenden Morrow in the Top 6 like Marc Crawford did, a "B" is pretty close. Maybe you could say "B-" or "C+", but I don't think he was terrible.

Ryder more than replaced Morrow's production, but Neal's 20 goals with Dallas weren't replaced. Plus, if you want to argue that Benn replaced Richards' production then no one replaced Benn's production (50+ points) on the 3rd line.

Overall, he still took a much weaker team close to the playoffs. That's not good enough, and I'm not trying to make excuses. I just think even though the team picked up fewer points they weren't worse than the previous year.
