Are we talking about a few years from now when he has even a modicum of experience or do you mean the completely unqualified Chelios of today?

I'd love to see Cheli return to the fold once he has some coaching experience (people typically pick that experience up before getting an NHL coaching job). But the Wings aren't really in the phase of their life-cycle where it makes sense to plug a person in as coach who has zero coaching experience.

Honestly, I've got nothing positive to say about McCrimmon. I'd take pretty much anyone else over him.

I'd honestly take him right now. He knows the game like the back of his hand, has been a player/coach every season since 06/07 because that was the last time he was even a good player. Plus, he'd be great for the amount of young defenceman we have coming up, teach em a bit of snarl and the tricks of the trade.

I voted 'hate' because I don't like Chelios. He should have never been a Red Wing in the first place... anyhoooooooooooooo



As much as I don't like him, I believe he would improve the team if he was an assistant.


There, I said it.

Classic 'grass is greener' syndrome here. Don't automatically assume that just anyone would immediately be an improvement upon McCrimmon.

Note, too, that the team's defense was quite good in '09/'10

I don't think Cheli would come in and blow the doors off McCrimmon, but long haul I think Cheli would be the better choice. Maybe.

Let me just say :w00t2: !!!

Either him or try to persuade Larionov to be one!

:shocking: Did you watch the same season as we did?

I hear what your saying, wouldn't it be nice to coax Fetisov and Larionov back to become the assistants? No offense to Paul MacLean. Didn't I hear that he was being allowed to interview for a head coaching job somewhere?

I think Chelios, having played more recently, has a great perception as to how the game is played today. McCrimmon is a good hockey guy but I do sometimes question his ability. Chelios behind the bench would be great.

I don't see how throwing Chelios in there is going to automatically make the team better. Because he was a great defenseman? McCrimmon was too.

The defense last season was in fact an pretty big upgrade from 2008/2009. Although I think how poor the defense was in 08/09 was a bit overlooked because of how good the offense was.

2006/2007 - 199 GA
2007/2008 - 184 GA
2008/2009 - 244 GA
2009/2010 - 216 GA

It's hard to jump back from 244 GA to 184 GA, but it looks like they're hopefully moving back towards better defense. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Those numbers don't matter much. You gotta compare it to the other teams as well, because it's a different season.

What matters is that we were 20th in GA 08-09 and 7th in GA 09-10, so yeah, that's a HUGE improvement there. It doesn't look so big when you just look at the numbers though.
