Carbonneau could do tactics. He just had trouble getting along with his players. And he never acknowledged changes, he played guys as though they were the same as when he initially evaluated them, never let them win ice time or change role.

He needed some experience and adaptability but he had the potential to be a very good coach. At least he understood tactics and matchups (though he'd do the matchups based on his player evalution 2 years earlier).
