Yes, of course. If you're not a winner, you're a loser. Seems pretty simple to me.

Great coaches win, and poor coaches lose. Playfair lost. He is a loser. This is why he has been coaching in the AHL for the past few years and why he was offered a job as an assistant coach, not a head coach.
Do you realize how many great coaches lost in the first round or didn't even make the playoffs at all in their first year?

Doesn't matter, the guy is a loser. If he was such a great coach he would have been given another opportunity at the NHL level instead of being buried in the minors for the past two years. Face the facts, the guy is nothing more than a youtube joke.

No, his logic was that if you're not first, you're last. Clearly flawed logic because he fails to take into account that many people may come in somewhere in between.

Look, if you don't win, you lose. It is just that simple. If Vancouver lose tonight and then go on to lose game seven, they're losers, plain and simple, along with twenty-eight other teams. The Boston Bruins would win the Stanley Cup and every other team would lose in their efforts to win.

Jim Playfair has never won, so he's a lifetime loser.

We're more likely to get Stajan for a pick than either of those two.

Does this apply to all sports or only to hockey?

Sure, I never said he wasn't a good minor league coach. I said that he was a loser at the NHL level, which is the only level anyone cares about.

You said he hasn't won therefore he is a lifetime loser. Pretty much make yourself look like a bigger loser then you state Playfair to be!

Anyone have any links to interviews from any Heat players? I haven't heard of what any of them have said (if anything).
