Cherry was fairly good in the NHL while he was in Boston. He has tonnes of excuses for failing in Colorado like a bad goalie though I dunno how true they are. To me though it seems like he was more of a motivational coach rather than one who passed on knowledge to his players of what plays to use, what to do in X situation etc. I don't think he'd do well in today's game though he was good for his time because today's game involves systems and strategy.
With that roster, injuries and management I don't know how anyone thinks the Avs should be doing better than they are.
