Assistant coaches should always be the coach's call. As for the Prust, Armstrong and Bouillon signings, those are depth player. It makes sense that Therrien had a say in picking those players as depth players, in my opinion, can be especially effective when they get along with the coach. Too many times in the last few years have we seen good depth guys being traded because the coach didn't like them. I'm not sure if what I'm saying is making any sense to anyone but me!

As for Daignault, I'm glad he's the defense coach. He did really well in Hartford. He's still young and has been in the league more recently. He has decent experience and he will be very good to our young defensive players. Robinson would've been nice too, but let's not overrate the position to the point where Daignault means apocalypse while Robinson means Stanley Cup.
