An assistant coach of the future...?

Yes, I know Carbo and Muller haven't even started yet, and I can't wait to see them tear it up because I'm positive they'll be just awesome.

However, there is one person I'd like to see in the future as a coach on this team. A former player of ours. I think he'd be a great addition to the coaching staff we already have. Nicklas Sundstrom!

Okay, not many people like him here, but lets face it. The guy has one of the best hockey minds in the world. He just never had the body to be able to execute what he was thinking. Some people have all the talent in the world, but no hockey sense at all. Sundstrom is the opposite. Hockey sense that's up there with the greats, but 3rd liner skills.

I think he'd be a great coach. Perhaps for special teams or something.

Possible! Many great coaches didn't have the talent to be the best professionnals. Bowman, Julien, Lemaire are examples .

Jacques Lemaire had an outstanding NHL career.

Yep...Alot more exciting that the way he coaches for sure!

Maybe he was thinking of Demers?
