On coaching, you run into the same problem as JT. There are worse coaches than TM, a lot worse. Guys like RW or Sutter (either Sutter) would be a flaming disaster at this point. The good ones are few and far between. If they want another coach, DW has to do his homework again as TM was actually cream of the crop in his class.

I will make a point about JT that just grinds on me. It is not JT himself that grinds on me, but every time I see someone put him next to God as far as hockey goes (like no one can match him) then I see the fallacy. Same would go for anyone else. As soon as godliness is attributed to any player, the team concept goes out the window. Personally, I think Crosby is the best out there when healthy but even he goes nowhere without Malkin and Letang and realistically his subordinates are not so subordinate. It is a fallacy for a fanbase/org to gift the spot of top dog on any team because it blinds them to other team issues and takes away several pieces of motivation for that player and the rest of the team. It becomes an aristocracy rather than a meritocracy. When issues like turnovers or speed or anything else come up, the issues get submerged in the motor boat argument, "But, but, but . . . ". It happens in all sports.
