Mustache boy from Buffalo works too.

Pretty sure there's a semi-retired guy in Phoenix who has forgotten more about tactics and bench management this week than Bylsma will ever know.

No matter which one it is, Fitzie and Tocchet work fine for me as assistants.
imagine Larry Robinson as an associate coach. could have had him last off-season instead of playing footsie with ZP and Doan. Doug Wilson wasn't afraid to ruffle Todd McLellan's feathers. all it takes is money (which we have in spades) and humility (something that might be lacking). here's what Robinson had to say about the enigmatic Sharks when he was hired:

"Even if you're the best player in the world, at some point, you have be told you're doing something wrong," he said. "My job is to make them not just good hockey players, but better hockey players."
