Is there any data available on coaching salaries? I'dbe shocked if the highest paid coach exceeds $3 million. And I'd imagine the lowest paid guys are around $500k. That spread isn't so much as a hill of beans in the annual operating budget of an NHL franchise.
the difference between a $500k coach and a $2.5m coach can be significant. in a related point, who do the caps have as assistant coaches? any long time veteran, known to be ace assistant coaches and/or former successful nhl head coaches here?

no...the difference in cost between ken stevens or craig ramsey and evason and jj is huge
