Giving him a stacked team to make up for his lack of coaching ability, is not a plan. Actual good coaches like Tippet, Ruff, Lemaire, Hartley, Sutter, Andy Murray, and Paul MacLean have done way more with less depth and talent.

Instead of replacing guys he can't get to score, why not bring in a coach that knows how to coach players and get them to score. Or knows how to find a balance between defense, and offense, and an effective system, and special teams.

I'm not going to say he doesn't have his positives, but would Q lead this current squad into the playoffs? I'm not buying it. Sure, they may be a select few coaches who could make this team better based off of their strategy and game planning. None are available though.
We don't have much to talk about in this regard if you keep trying to put Sacco on the same level as Joel Quenneville who has two stanley cups as a coach, a Jack Adams award, and 638 wins.
