My parameters are pretty wide. Coaching didnt suit Richard & Richard didnt suit Coaching. Bad Coach, be it one game or one hundred. Plantes in there for similar reasons despite the uptik with the Diques; Geoffrion gets all kinds of credit for Atlanta, not so much elsewhere, NY/Mtl, which is why I included him, ill health, zoo's & circuses considered. And Gretzky? Bad Coach. Nowhere near the worst but "bad enough" for as is my prerogative to give him "Honourable Mention" along with the aforementioned. None of these guys would be in the same class as a Harkness or whomever, varying degree's of incompetence, unsuitability or what have you...
