As much as I can't really judge other teams, there's no current NHL coach I could see doing a worse job in Colorado right now, aside from maybe Oates but his career is only a few games old so he gets a pass.

Lindy Ruff has to be the worst to be employed for such a long time, dude's made the playoffs 4 times in the past decade and is still living off his success during Hasek.

Sacco is clueless. It's a wonder he's got to coach for as long as he has. Capuano is a close second.

Oates is too new to make a judgement.

How could anyone say one of Torts, Bylsma, Lavi is the worst coach in the league?

It doesn't make any sense, sometimes people just voted out of bitterness I think. Obviously Sacco is a good coach.

I'd say ruff is in the upper echelon of bad coaches ATM. He's giving the tyler ennis line the highest % of defensive zone starts out of everyone (even though ennis is awful defensively and even worse at faceoffs. and he is benching alex sulzer today for basically one bad play last game even though he and ehrhoff have been more than adequate defensively and are basically the only 2 d-men that haven't sucked hard for us so far.
