Roger Ronnberg - NHL capable coach?

Roger Ronnberg coached like a boss! He took this team, which was not the gold favorite and implemented an excellent system and went undefeated on Canadian soil. He is also a very young coach, do you think he could become a NHL coach in the future?

I think he´s too swedish to be an NHL coach, different type of leadership, but he sure did a great job.

HE can replace Pär Mårts in a few years

I don't see why not.

Had a Canadian coach who was only 40 years old won the WJC there would probaley be teams lining up for him. He would have to take an AHL job or assistant some where for a few years before taking a Head coaching job in the NHL.

I'm not a fan of his, but he has definitely improved. Now, I doubt he'll ever get to the NHL, but I'm pretty sure he's going to get a chance to take over Tre Kronor after Mårts.

He is perhaps not really an Ulf Samuelsson type of guy, but both are emotional and Swedes - that is Ulf has been ass. coach in NHL. With some experience as assistant coach Rönnberg might cut it after some years.

It wasn't his system, the men's team uses the same system. So no, I don't think he'll become an NHL coach. He's more likely to succeed Mårts in the men's team.

Do he have the potential? Yes sure. But how many Euro-coaches have there been in the NHL? I can't really think of any one. He could perhaps become a assistant coach but seeing as he never played in the NHL or been involved with that league in any other way I don't think a team will try him. Hopefully he will carry on his success with Tre Kronor when Mårts steps down.

Ivan Hlinka was the Penguins head coach for one season (plus a couple of games in the following season). Alpo Suhonen coached the Blackhawks for one season (2000-01).

Some Finnish coaches have said that biggest problem to NHL is the lack of good contacts.

NHL teams don't want to gamble taking random European coach. And AHL is long and bumby road.

For tacticalview yes. There's huge difference in european coaches and NA. Tactical side of the game is way ahead of NA in Europe.

Ronnberg does not play a typical euro game though.

I think if we ever see a Swedish head coach in the NHL, it will be someone who played in the NHL.

Most certainly. An NHL GM hiring a coach straight out of Europe is a huge risk (no North American hockey) and I don't think many European coaches are willing to work their way up through the AHL.

Don't think that would be a wise thing to do. Sure he won gold with them but I can't think of one Sweden or even oversea coach, who has been succesful in NA.

A good coach is a good coach, which Ronnberg appears to be. Don't see why he couldn't make the NHL one day if he chose to give it a try.

Does he normally coach in the men's league or is he strictly a junior league coach?

I think it's important to be fluent in english when coaching in AHL or NHL and I doubt Rönnberg is that? I like him though, let's start with some assistant coaching, perhaps in AHL.

Former Swedish NHL'ers probably have the best chance in the future.

Perhaps Ulf even though he still is a bit controversial with his playing dirty reputation.

He made me a big fan this tournament, but talk of coaching in the NHL doesn't seem very unrealistic. Hope he will coach the U20 team for another couple of years, then replace Mårts.

I do like Rönnberg, but don't think he's top 10 among Swedish coaches. Someone like SEL-coach Jonas Rönnqvist (Luleå) is a far more interesting coach prospect.

He coached Luleå in the SEL and has also been assistant coach with the men's national team.

I like his style a lot, and his style couldn't be less Swedish. He's willing to learn and knows that he's not gods gift to coaching by default. Good eye for details for being a Swedish coach and certainly improving with experience. However that is not something that will take a Swedish coach to the NHL. KHL feels more likely and I'm pretty sure he's also a future Tre Kronor coach, maybe the next one.

This is true. It is almost laughable how far NHL has fallen behind Europe when it comes to tactics. If NHL had a real competitor in Europe it wouldn't be the number one league anymore. Too bad it's such a small sport.

I'm impressed by the fact that he ditched Klingberg. It was a very un-swedish way of coaching. He won't coach in the NHL however and that's probably good for both him and the NHL.
