Really cool way of presenting it. No idea how many potential coaches are included though.

That coach-picker thing is brilliant, indeed. Kudos to Japer's.

Pretty neat. Surely this will be the deciding factor.

My Georgish answers generated Cooper. I wonder how many different possible answers there are, though. (add Gus)

Same. I think it's because I put more importance on offense than defense in the answers, but damn.

Edit: I think there should be more questions, although it might be harder to make work. It seems like answering that NHL experience isn't a priority, etc., almost guarantees you a non-NHL name, since so many of the questions are related to that. I also answered that I didn't care about ties to the organization, and got...Mark French. I just wish more of the questions were about their actual coaching styles/abilities. Cool idea though.

Looks like around 20, including Evason (no longer available)

I got Boughner the first time, Cooper the second time.

Stevens and Oates quotes have come through hockey writers at least, as opposed to speculation by posters on HFBoards.
Those quotes were speculation from CSN Washington, which then were repreated in other stories. Speculation is about worthless everywhere.
