Laviolette is a one trick pony more or less, but it's a really good trick in that he does have great ability to turn a team around and he does have great ability to push a team over the top if they're ready for it.

Still, pretty much every coach has a shelf life (mostly short ones) and pretty much every coach doesn't adapt very well to rosters that don't fit their styles.

Coach reputations are also heavily influenced by the results of their team. Bylsma is case study number one for this considering he's blown it in the playoffs time after time and Penguins fans hate him yet his job is secure due to having a team that can coast on purely talent level and he's an Olympics coach.
