I said I didn't think they had more than we do, not that they didn't have any. The coach really made the difference though and definitely took a lot of the pressure off of Yzerman's shoulders.
I've read and heard so many stories about Bowman and how he dealt with players that didn't follow rules or that didn't do exactly as he said, the guy was without a doubt the best coach in NHL history (imo).
I do think that Saku could use a little help from a good coach or someone like Selanne
