Muldoon has more Stanley Cup appearances over Hart, but I think that's his only advantage. Hart finished first in the regular season five times and has the extra Cup win. Hart also deserves some credit for his employment of the five-man attack. I'm not sure Muldoon was an innovator, just a solid balanced coach who liked toughness on his team.
I've posted about my team being full of speed to fit Hart's gameplan, does Philly have the toughness Muldoon liked?
I think coaching is an advantage for Pittsburgh here.
