I really don’t believe many people truly thought Disco Dan was a good coach given the talent he had on the team. He walked into an ideal situation in that he wasn’t Michel Therrien I also fail to see how he and Torts even compare outside of winning a Cup, that’s about where the similarities end. It’s not all about Xs and Os, for sure. That sort of mindset can certainly bring success, but it’s clear that where Hynes excels is that he pushes all the right buttons and has his fingers on the pulse of the team. Being able to communicate effectively above all else probably goes the longest way to success as a coach, and that more than anything is the reason Bylsma, Torts and most recently AV have short shelf lives.
