Good post. One ever so minor disagreement here though; yes, a good coach gets his team up for the big games, but the players do it themselves. No one has to tell Smytty to focus and get pumped up when they play the Canucks, or the Divealanche. A good coach will do this anyhow, but a GREAT coach will get the team up for Columbus, Atlanta, Carolina, Pittsburg, et al.
Another thing that concerns me about the EDM bench boss(es) is the number of guys back there. There has got to be conflicting views when you have a head coach and how many assitants (I really don't know the exact number, but I remember the intros one night, and it was like 3 or 4). Get a head coach, an offensive specialist, and a defensive specialist. No need for a bench full of coaches; you are just going to confuse the players.
