Jeremy Colliton Is 0-1 As The Head Coach Of The Chicago Blackhawks

from Barry Rozner of the Chicago Daily-Herald,

He's a 33-year-old rookie NHL coach who owes his career to Bowman and there's no doubt about who will be making personnel decisions from this point forward.

Get used to it. That's the way of the world today. Very young and inexpensive coaches who operate at the whim of their bosses.

Look around. The Joel Quennevilles and Joe Maddons of the world are an endangered species.

But it doesn't mean a guy like Colliton -- who made an unpleasant debut in a 4-3 defeat at the UC Thursday night -- can't succeed.

The Blackhawks will succeed or fail going forward if their best players are their best players, and if Bowman can find better players to play with their best players.

Colliton must make sure his stars play like stars, and it's his job to put them in the best position to succeed.

It will take him some time to figure out just how to do that.
