Although Cooper won two minor-league championships, the NHL coaching experience provided by Bowness that started as an assistant in Winnipeg in 1984-85 became as attractive as his ability to work and communicate with young and veteran blueliners. In Vancouver, Bowness got Chris Tanev to the next level and helped fast-track Frank Corrado after mentoring Kevin Bieksa and Alex Edler. In Tampa, he’ll have similar challenges with Victor Hedman and Keith Aulie but can sell the message through Sami Salo, Eric Brewer and Matt Carle.
Some names he's helped develop in Vancouver.
