I like the idea of Cooper if the Avs actually looked outside the organization. Along the same lines as Cooper, another coach to look at would be Dallas Eakins. Seems to be great with younger players (read a quote somewhere where Kadri attributed his success this season to Eakins' guidance) and gets good team defense too (last year through 3 rounds of the Calder Cup playoffs the Marlies PK was something ridiculous like 92%-94%).
Though from what has been said about Cooper on here, it sounds like Cooper is similar but has had some more success. Whether that's having a better team or being a better coach, I'm not sure. I know I'd take either of them over Sacco though.
