Well he did lose his teams on ocassions, Lemieux (clash of two primadonnas) hated him and basically runned him out of Pitt, I know for a fact that the 70's Habs hated his guts as well, I'm not sure who was the guy who said it (I think it was Lafleur), but one of those legendary Habs players said they would've won more if it wasn't for Bowman, hell even Stevie Y hated him when he first came to Detroit. One thing is certain Scotty Bowman was no players coach, the only guys who come to mind as worse when it comes to handling their players are Shore and Imlach.
