Mike Yeo.

Learn how to run a powerplay. Then learn how to grow some eyebrows, you freaking mutant.

Sutter is awesome, he just needs to trust his rookies more and play Vrana and Bergfors. Growing pains come, but the trade off with those two guys should go a long way.

Is he still whining like last year or has he grown past all that?

He's a PP coach though.

If we're bringing PP coaches up, Perry Pearn should be #1 on the list. Ironic that his initials are PP

I really dislike Stevens, I've always been a Craig MacTavish supporter.

1. Keenan
2. Stevens
3. MacTavish
4. Andy Murray
5. Therrien - The team is 11-4-2 under his guidance or lack thereof, imagine how the team would play if they had a good coach.

The fact that you include Huddy when even the briefest of looks at his record in maximizing the talent he has available to him will show the opposite to be true, immediately discredits your opinon.

Babcock. He's terrible in every sense of the word. I can't believe he got a job as a coach.

The Pens powerplay scores in spite of itself. Teams with a much less talented unit have stronger puck movement, usually it's some great individual effort that gets the goal. There are never any adjustments either. He sucks enough to be mentioned here.

Surprised it took that many posts for Yeo to come up. But he is the answer to this question.

I don't get all the hate on Therrien. I should, because I'm a Pens fan, but I don't.

He makes good decisions most of the time.

For example, he gave Talbot a shot on Crosby's wing, and that's worked out very well. Also, his use of Mike Zigomanis has been simply masterful. Against Detroit, he matched up Ziggy with Datsyuk to take faceoffs on the powerplay, and he won 2 draws that turned directly to goals.

Oh yeah, he took the worst team in hockey and has made them one of the league's top five teams in 2.5 years. Yes, I know Crosby, Malkin, Staal blah blah blah but it still takes a good coach. He knows how to get results out of his players.

I think MacT is a good coach but the Oilers aren't built to play his style of game. Give MacT the Canucks, Wild or Devils and all of a sudden he looks like a great coach.

The Oilers need a guy like Babock or Ruff....but a lot of teams could use them.
