Pierre McGuire talked to the Wild about becoming a GM... how about we lure him over here to be a coach?

I hope Gainey is not interested in hiring him.

Is there something Crawford did to make you guys react that way??
Would'nt he be a good fit in Montreal? I don't really know him, just asking...

I for one am leaning on the other side, I like that. Always been a fan of the early 2000s Canucks, I think he is a very good coach, with tons of NHL experience. I have reactions like this when Roy's name is mentioned!

Horrible coach with young players, why do you think the Kings got rid of him!

I would rather go with a young coach with success in the CHL and/or AHL like Pens and Sens have went on to do.

Didn't he win the Cup in 1995 and 1996 with a young team? Jack Adams to boot.

He only won in 1996 but was first in 1995.

Uh, he turned Naslund and Bertuzzi into All-stars. Deadmarsh and Forsberg also flourished under him.

People who rip on Crawford have no idea what they're talking about. He's the best vet coach available.

Don't forget he took a young Nords team and made them finish 1st and the next year as the Avs, they won the Cup. LA is still sucking 2 years after he left.

They hate him because they believe he had a part in the Bertuzzi incident. I think he could be a fine coach. I believe that every coach the Habs have had since Tremblay (I really have a hate on for him.) did a fine job with what they had to work with, so take my opinion for what its worth...

That team had some young players like Deadmarsh and Forsberg, but Sakic was 26 entering his prime and they had veteran players like Roy, Lemieux and Keane on that team as well for leadership and past cup champs as well.

Without Roy we would never mention the Avalanche of ever winning the Cup, or Crawford being a coach of a Cup winner.

Joining Vancouver in the midst of a rebuilding period for the franchise, Crawford slowly developed the Canucks into a successful regular season team, playing a fast-paced and offensively emphasized style of play. After one-and-a-half seasons, Crawford led Vancouver back to the playoffs, however, was defeated in the first round by his former team, Colorado.

In 2002–03, Vancouver continued to improve under Crawford and posted a franchise record (since surpassed) of 104 points. The following season, they took the Northwest Division title from the Avalanche, who had won the previous nine division titles (inclusive of the Pacific Division prior to division restructuring, and the year before the move to Colorado as the Quebec Nordiques). Despite Vancouver's regular season success, they failed to make any significant playoff runs and, compounded by the Canucks' failure to make the postseason in 2005–06, Crawford was let go by management on April 25, 2006, and replaced by Alain Vigneault.

In six-and-a-half seasons' work with the Canucks, Crawford marked himself as the longest-serving and winningest head coach in franchise history, coaching 529 games and 246 wins. On February 3, 2006, one of his last games in Vancouver, he also became the third-youngest head coach in NHL history to reach 400 wins. At 44 years and 335 days, this mark trails only Scotty Bowman and Glen Sather — both NHL legends.
Nuff said. Haters are haters.

Every team needs a great goalie to win, so it's not just Crawford. You can compare players like Deadmarsh and Forsberg to guys like Kopitar with LA. Yet LA is still sucking, why? He left 2 years ago...we are still waiting.

And no one succeeded in LA since him, so it is very hard to fault him on that.

Given the limited pool we have to select from (due to language issue), I have no problem with Marc Crawford. A Stanley Cup championship, a Jack Adams trophy, he was selected as Team Canada's coach in Nagano Olympics in 1998 (I know Canada lost in semi-finals but Hasek was amazing), and Crawford did a great job resurrecting the Saint John's Maple Leafs in the AHL before he became coach of the very young Quebec Nordiques.

Crow has a ton of experience and has always been liked by his players. Also, Crow usually employs an attacking offense. He also likely has a good relationship with Gainey....Gainey and Bobby Clark were GM's of Team Canada at Nagano. He's respected throughout hockey. He's a much better choice than Hartley or Therrien in my opinion.
