I vote Marc Crawford or Mike Keenan.

Marc Crawford is just terrible. One of the few things Kings and Stars fans can agree on.

Lol pretty much. I didn't necessarily hate him when he was in Dallas, some of his decisions kind of bugged me. The thing that bugged me the most is that he replaced Tippett.

The thing that bothered me the most (during his stint with the Kings) was the 6-5 losses. That's not hockey, that's a damn gong show.

Crawford coaches games like he paid to get in the arena and just wants to be entertained.

We can also agree that Lauri Tukonen is a bust and Mattias Norstrom was the man.

This may be an unpopular opinion, but I'm going to throw Bob Hartley's name into the mix here.

In B4 a Leafs fan says Carlyle. That's the trend right? Current leafs coach always sucks? Or are you guys not there yet with him?

Therrien was the coach in '08, not Bylsma.

He also led the team to one of the best point totals in franchise history in 2011, when all Staal, Crosby, and Geno missed significant time. That year he won Jack Adams.



You can't tell me he's anywhere near as bad as, say, Bob Hartley or Crawford. He's definitely a better coach than Claude Julien.

Can't argue with Crawford for worst Cup winning coach.
