He flat out wasn't ready for it IMO. 2 years with the Pens in a non-coaching role, 2 years as an assistant with Hartford, 6 years as a NCAA assistant mostly with D-III teams. He needed HC experience elsewhere first, whether that was in the AHL or IHL, before he should have been given the reigns with an NHL team.

Personally I think he's closer to being GM material then HC material the same way I think Ron Francis is going to make an exceptional GM but he wouldn't be the kind of guy I'd want coaching my team.
