When you wrote that Babs is best coach period, I take that to mean that he is the best coach in the league by a country mile, without a close 2nd. All I'm saying is that maybe he's not. 2 coaches got 2 Stanley Cups in the last 5 years. I said he was a good coach, no doubt but I don't think he is the "best coach period",
You can't use the argument that Sutter got x, y, z and Quennvile got a, b, c therefore, they are not in the discussion of best coach category. I presented to you Bylsma who had the best and got fired. So it's very possible to have a good roster and still flop. So what if I said, Babs won 2 gold medals because he got a roster of the best players in the world so therefore we should discount those 2 achievements in his resume. If you eliminate those 2 gold medals, then Babs hasn't won anything for a long long time ... your logic doesn't make sense. Think about it. Facts don't lie.
Again, let me just say again, Babs is a good coach. He is not the "best coach, period". This statement is what I'm debating.
Dude, you're wasting your time. The only acceptable position to have on the matter is that "Babcock is the best coach eva!" because everybody else coaches superstar teams, and he coaches losers. You have to forget that he only has one Cup, and that the team that won it was full of superstars.
