It made no difference to the team, but it could quite possibly ruin anything Cunneyworth had going for him in the future at possibly getting another legitimate NHL coaching job.
He was coaching in the AHL for like 10 years, how much grooming did he need? Deboer and others junped to the NHL straight from junior.
The situation became a trainwreck in large part because of his coaching plus a few injuries. Language had nothin g to do with wins and losses.
