You can't complain about the results he's given in his 2 years here, but what is the big rush to sign this guy to a long extension before his contract is up? Does anyone think he'd up and walk at the end of the year? Who was the last coach to walk from his team, Mike Keenan? lol
This is to give power to the coach to get his message through. Lots of millionaire egos in a dressing room who all want the same thing but have a different idea of how to do it.
What's the over/under on MT's longevity really ? January 2016 ? I'd take under on that...
He's done great this year, but historically players get tired of him pretty quickly. I predict we'll have an disappointing season and playoffs next year, bad start in 2015-2016 and he'll be gone by Christmas.
So ridiculously long contract IMHO, but who cares as long as M. Molson doesn't mind footing the bill when we need him out of here
This is the biggest non story of the Summer. Come on did you really think he was gonna coach out his last year and not get an extension? Just ask Tortorella how his five years contract protected him from getting the axe.
Four years is too much, but whatever. Not like he's going to last that long.
I agree. Coach contract length doesn't matter in the slightest. If he was signed for two years, and say we made the second round or Conference Finals again.. he'd just be extended anyway. If we miss the playoffs next year, he may be fired immediately.
However, if we keep making the playoffs with him.. he may make it.
I mean, me too sometime I'm wondering why he's doing this and that but, in the end, he did a good job. Yes, I'd prefer to see more young gun with more ice time. They say money talk, right? Well, result talk, too.
He's not a jack adam type of coach, thats my opinion, but I don't think he deserve the hate that some give him. Overall, I'd give him a 7.4/10
