    Other threads have mentioned bringing in a specialist to help with the coaching. How about Adam Oates, he could coach the pp and assist Tyler in his development.

    CJ does have the 10th best win % overall as a Bruins coach at .612 (out of 28 total coaches), not bad but unfortunately I have to agree that his style of coaching does not fit this team. You have to wonder what happened, they came out on fire so we know they can do it. I thought maybe it was a change in strategy, open the game up a little. I don't care what anybody says, I like Milbury and at least he HAS coaching experience. I'd want him over Gord or Brick, and BTW, he was quite successful as a Bruins coach with a .628 win % (I know he had some great players...)

    Does your ranking account for the change in point scoring which has occured.  I mean it's a fact that the winning percentage of the NHL in total prior to 1999 Rule change was .500.  Since then it has gone up, this is not because the players coaches and GMs are all better.  This change makes it difficult for Coaches since to be compared to coaches before.

    The Leafs (in the 70s) and the Habs (in the 90s) both grabbed guys out of the booth and put them behind the bench. Both were miserable failures, as is usually the case when this happens. Not always...but usually.

    In Response to Re: How about Kluzak as a coach? : NAS, are you referring to the same Milbury who as coach of the B's introduced phreakin' BALLET to training camp ?  The same Milbury, who as far as I knew at the time, became the first coach in the NHL to openly urge his players to turtle and/or otherwise not respond to the opposition in order to give the B's more power play chances ?  Sure, that makes sense in a Julien sort of way, but does that kind of strategy sync with Milbury's image as a tough-guy coach ?  Absolutely not.  It didn't add up back then and it certainly doesn't today in "the new NHL".  And please don't talk about how far he brought the 1990 team, look at the players they had on that club (Bourque, Neely, Oates, Galley, Wesley, Janney, Moog, Poulin...hell, YOU might have been able to coach that group to the Finals!). Sorry, but Milbury ain't the right guy to lead this team.  Milbury's always been a talker vs. a doer.  Fans saw right through his phony tough-guy act, regularly booing him at the old Garden.  And when asked about it Milbury, seldom at a loss for wards as everyone knows, didn't have much to say, other than claiming not to understand why Bruins fans were booing one of their own.  During stoppages, Milbury would inevitably start yapping AFTER the linesman arrived on the scene.  On one unforgettable night, Larry Robinson called him on it.  Milbury, pretending not to hear Big Larry, soon realized Robinson meant business.  As the fraudulent Milbury tried to cover up, Robinson loaded up for an upper-cut that was so well telecast that the entire Garden crowd groaned as it was thrown.  Despite all of the above, you'd actually want a phony like Milbury to be the next Bruins coach?  I sure as hell don't, let him do his yapping on TV.

    Just because you disagree with him or his style, it doesn't make him a failure.

    I didn't say I'd like him to coach Boston.

    In Response to Re: How about Kluzak as a coach? : Okay, so if CJ's style of coaching doesn't fit this team, what on earth makes you think that Milbury's style of coaching from TWENTY years ago will be a fit?  Details please.  Milbury's another Barry Melrose waiting to happen, fawgeddaboutit.

    Nothing at all, just speaking to the names being tossed in this thread.  Not sure who 's available and who I would really want, not enough time in my day for those things. DO I want Milbury behind the bench? I'd have to think there's a better solution.

    Milt Schmidt would be better than any mentioned so far.

    If not it looks like Calgary might cut a couple of Sutters loose sooner than later.

    Why do people continue to believe former Bruins' players have some credentials to be head coaches in the NHL?

    Not that I actually want to see him behind the bench, but ballet has been used even in football camps because it does good things for peoples balance. I for one remember what most of the skaters looked like back then, and a large number of them needed the help.

    And there is a difference between turtling and drawing penalties. Don't forget Milbury is also the guy who sent his enforcers to the All Star game.
