Where's Quenneville on that list? At least you were smart enough not to put Bylsma anywhere near a top coaches list.

That's a good list imho. I think Quenneville has to be in the conversation - having two cups in the post lockout era. It's hard not to mention Lindy Ruff or Ken Hitchcock. I'm pretty bullish on Alain Vigneault too.

We'll give him a couple more years, but I like what DeBoer has been doing in New Jersey as well.

As a Hawks fan I rip on Q-stache as much as anybody but the guy is going to end up in the Hall of Fame. Hard not to have him near the top of any list of current NHL coaches.

Babcock's my #1.

After that, probably a collection of about 10 guys.

Agreed. It's hard to choose an order, IMO.

Q's horrible. Did you pay attention to the decisions he made in the playoffs? Most were flat our brutal and the only 'good' ones he made were fixes to his original mistakes.

The only good things Q did all regular season were give Saad top line minutes and keep his tinkering to all-time lows. I had given him credit for giving Frolik and Kruger the opportunity to shine on PK1 but he admitted he only did that because he though his stars might be overly taxed in the abbreviated season. In other words it worked out of dumb luck.

Once the playoffs hit Q-tard was his typical moronic self. One of the most overrated coaches in NHL history that has walked into some VERY fortunate coaching situations. We win in SPITE of him, not because of him.

I know I'm in the minority of Hawk fans but I didn't want him back after the first Cup run and have wanted him gone the past 3 seasons. I think a coach with some tactical aptitude and one that would hire better coaches instead of bringing in worthless buddies could get more out of this team. It's scary, but we would have been EVEN BETTER if our PP wasn't the biggest embarrassment in all of sports.

Q isn't a top 5 coach, he's simply coached on the NHL's best roster for 2 seasons. All he had to do was not screw it up...which...he almost did.
