I'm sure the management will have a close eye on that, and as we've had more or less the same strategy since Crow was the head coach on the big club, our preference to have the same system at both levels should be evident.

If McT wants to set himself up for an NHL head coaching job, I don't think he's going to plan to do it by butting heads with his boss all season long.

Mac T is first and foremost a team player. I don't see any problems are the horizon with him in Chicago. He is good with the young guys, unlike AV. He knows his job is to have the players ready to step into the line up if needed and lets not forget he won't be going it alone.

Gillis dictates what system is played by the personnel he brings in, the proof is in the pudding. While AV is a defense first coach, the players he has to work with all boast a strong two-way mindset.

If/when MacT comes back to the NHL, his coaching style will likely have evolved from his Oiler Days, and if it is indeed with Vancouver, I fully expect him to carry the same responsible, two-way skating style the current staff employs.

I'm curious why you (or anyone here ftm) believe Veenyo lacks in player development abilities. Is it because he's so committed to the Sedins/Kesler/Burrows guys, that he doesn't pay mind to Gillis' young additions?

Was it not AV who brought along the Edler, Raymond, Hansen wave, following the aforementioned Burr/Kes/Bieksa core?

With which players (current or former) has he failed to 'develop' or to get the most out of?

Although, to be fair, I highly doubt he would've scored over 30 goals without his ass landing on waivers first.

I think sometimes he lacks focus not commitment. Some players simply don't have everything. that might take the edge. That's not necessarily a big deal, but in this area, that small edge is everything. :hmmm:

Personally I think Hansen may have developed the way he did despite AV. Hansen was always rumoured on the trading block and two seasons scored a beauty goal after coming off a couple week press box stint... only to go back to the press box the very next game.

Who knows, maybe it was tough love and thats how AV got him to where he is today; but my gut still tells me that he just wasn't one of AV's guys.

Pretty sure Gillis didn't hire a minor league coach and then say "So long, see you in May. LMK how the season went."

Like every other aspect of the Wolves operation, the style to be employed by MacT will be a collaborative decision between Gillis, Wendell Young, and of course the coach himself (not to mention a few others, I'm sure).

Plus MacT had 10 years experience coaching AHL-level talent in Edmonton, so that won't be a challenge for him. :mrgreen:
