No one can give an educated guess. At this point he's had success with a glorified high school team. That's not to say he won't succeed as a NHL coach, but that's no indication that he will succeed either. Nor does his NHL career matter, which is one reason why everyone likes the "idea" of Housely. Babcock= 0 NHL games. Gretzky = [pick your record].
You'd have to be in the locker room for extended periods.. see how relates to players, evaluate leadership skills, see how he teaches the game to others, interview him and understand his vision as a coach etc, etc, etc. Essentially everything we don't know.
