Anyway, coaching aside I'm interested to know how that team is going to operate.
Exactly. Even then a great coach learns what he cannot do and when he has to walk away.

Bowman after Buffalo realized that while he could contribute ideas to a GM, he was not a GM and adjusted accordingly. In Pittsburgh he realized that he could not change the Lemieux, Jagr, offense first culture and moved on. In Detroit he realized that he could change such cultures and stayed.
