And I'm pretty sure the entire reason he was drafted was because of the system he utilizes in Tampa. So if he can't implement that system as an assistant coach, what does he offer?
He offers experience of that particular system. Its not about implemting it I believe, more about having someone with expert opinion on how it works/weaknesses.

Am I correct, Canadiens?
