Well, the rules say you can pick a coach at any time, so I select, as the first coach chosen, Scotty Bowman.

With all due respect to Dick Irvin Sr. and Toe Blake, SB is the winningest coach of all time. What makes him so appealing is that he demonstrated that he can coach, with positive results, in different eras. He coached the Habs to cups in the run and gun era of the '70s, and he coached the Wings to the Stanley Cup where the trap was the norm in the 90s. He has shown that he can coach well, regardless of the strengths of the team.
