I don't agree with the order.

Quennville should not be #1. I don't care about injuries, they still have Pronger, Tkachuk, Weight, Demitra, Osgood etc.....

I don't agree with Wilson at #2 either. Here is my list without Hartley:

1- Sutter
2- Julien
3- Trotz
4- Murray
5- Wilson

Have to give alot of credit to Andy Murray for the job he has done. With all of those injuries, and to still have them fighting for a playoff spot, thats pretty good! They have lost alot of regulars for the season on that L.A. club.

They've gotten points out of 13 of their last 16 games with and without Palffy for half of those games. They went through a stretch without winning in 14 straight but they also only lost 3 of those games. They're hanging in there and it has a lot to do with Murray's preparation of this team. He makes them responsible and accountable for their actions on the ice. He makes absolutely no excuses even with all the injuries. He gets the most out of his team even if 4 of their top forwards are out. It's a credit to him and the team for battling every night and that is why they are sitting at the 8th spot in the West right now.

Thanks for having my back on this one!

I think Pat Quinn doesn't get enough credit. He has his team in first place in a very competitive division and has had a ton of injuries to deal with to significant players.

If by "Great" start you mean a 12-9-1-1 record, then yes, your right. Thats not exactly a great start, imo. The kings have been maintaining a steady pace with their record. They haven't exactly gone 'downhill' either since they're currently 18-14-10-5.

Kings have hit a couple bumps in the road (top 4 forwards out: Palffy, allison, deadmarsh, straka plus top 3 dmen out: visnovsky, miller, norstrom), but they have maintained a steady pace throughout the season, with or without Palffy. Andy Murray has been the key.

Heres a link to the accumulated season record.

I'd like to hear why McKenzie leaves Pat Burns off this list myself. Not even an honorable aftermentioning.

And all those injuries will amount to 600+ man games lost due to injuries when the end of the season hits.
If the Kings make it into the playoffs, Murray will without a doubt win coach of the year honors.
