Has Greg Gilbert always been an ass????

I'm just wondering what some of you Flames fans who were around during the brief "Gilbert era" think of him? Has he always been an ego-maniac?

Greg Gilbert is considered an excellent coach, astute hockey mind, and all 'round decent person.

He may be abrasive in certain circumstances, but what hockey coach isn't?

Sorry, you'll have to provide some first-hand examples of your take on his demeanor.

I agree with BR. If you say he's always been an ass, but I guess you'd have to give us more recent examples. I haven't paid him any mind since Calgary fired him.

Anyways, I think his major flaw as a coach is maturity. You can't let petty differences, especially with star players get in the way of you doing your job.
Who knows how long Gilbert would have stayed if the Savard situation was handled better.

He'll also could've taken the time to search the forum, for the earlier thread on Gilbert, instead of starting a new one with such an obnoxious title.

I thought he was a good coach just inexprienced. Very inexprienced.
