He's definitely a "players coach". That doesn't mean he's a softy and won't put you in the doghouse (Duchene last season). BUT, look what the result of that... it was a wake up call for Duchene and he's amazing this season.

My beef is less with Sacco and more with the FO not giving him any depth to work with. It's our top guys playing with the LEM. Sure, Sacco has his weaknesses as a coach, but he hasn't had much to work with.

I don't think Sacco put Duchene in the doghouse, rather Sacco tried shuffling him around because he was struggling due to injury. If you think this season's production from Duchene is because of Sacco and not because of Duchene's offseason training and desire to be better, welp.
