Winning teams are just a combination of good players that are thrown together and are then expected to succeed. This is a team sport, not baseball. They need to work together as a team, and that is the coaches job. He does get paid for a reason.
You ever wonder how some of these coaches out there get so much more out of way weaker rosters? They're good coaches, and they show the players how to do certain things to succeed, as a team.
According to your logic, the Oilers should be killing the league. Well, there ya go. It takes a good coach to make a good team, not just a bunch of good players. Good players will get you so far, but it needs to be combined with good coaching.
