Under Davis Payne as head coach, the Blues had the 10th ranked PP when he coached them in 2010-11. He only had one full season of coaching them as he was hired midway through the 2009-10 season, coaching 42 games with a winning record at 23-15-4. Coached the Blues to a 38-33-11 record the following season with an inexperienced team. The Blues started this season at 6-7 before he was replaced by Ken Hitchcock.

He is young (will be turning 42 in September), but I don't know much about his coaching philosophy and what he preaches. He does have a lot of experience coaching younger players though. It's never a bad thing to have two former NHL coaches behind the bench.
