Mårts is overrated as a coach

Never understood why Swedish Hockey Federation extended Mårts contract. I know he is generally seen as a good coach in medias eyes, but lets look at his results. The guy crumbles in big finals. He has been to several big finals, but only managed to win one (against the swiss)

He had arguably one of the finest WJC generations at his disposals. He won all games until the final, where sweden always underachieved.Now in WHC, he has his gold. But lets not forget the other lackluster efforts he put in. A 1-6 rout against Finland. In the olympics, sweden went 0-3 against Canada where Sweden wasnt even close. The big WJC final in 2009 ended onesided 1-5 to canada also.


funny how BÅG got all the hate, but atleast he has his olympic gold to show for. Yes BÅG got hate for weird player selections, but Mårts isnt doing any better in that department.

Problem with Mårts is his and the federations relationship with our North American players. Remember the contract they tried to force on the national junior team players a few years ago?

Mårts is a better game coach than BÅG, but neither of them can put a team together, and that is in my opinion more important than actual play by play coaching.

Who should replace Mårts after 2018?

Roger Rönnberg should be a hot option!

Not Rönnberg, please. He's not a good enough game coach for it. Only think he has ever won is a WJC with one of the best swedish teams ever. i don't think his work in Frölunda is enough evidence of his coaching skills.

I question that. The 92's was/is seen as a poor age group, no Landeskog in the tourny and Larsson a good two way player but no offensive catalyst had the role as number one centre and our goal-scorer was currently playing in Div I. The 93's was leaned upon together with returning players. Much like next year...

What i am trying to say is that there was alot of question marks going into the tourny. IMO the 90,91,93 and 94 all had better teams going into the tourny.

Sam Hallam seems like a great coach, I really got a good impression from him. Of course too fresh to even be considered for NT coaching, but might an interesting name in the future.

Mårts is a lot better now that he's gone back to play more "Swedish". After letting in 46 goals in 19 games 2011 & 2012, we've let in 24 goals the last 17 WCH games.

And that's with a much worse defense on paper. So at least he's not stubborn to a fault. Actually, he's starting to find a good balance between defense and offense.

I've given up the idea that a coach can make North American players come play in the World Champs by good communications. They won't be talked into coming. That's something for the federation to deal with, not the head coach.

Right now it's a long time to the next Olympics and he's doing some results lately, so no hurry.

Grönborg needs a lot of fine-tuning as a head coach before he's ready for the finest coaching job. For starters, not lose his cool every time his team is in a high pressure situation. He's head coached three finals at the junior level and lost all of them.
