Who Would Make The Better Coach In Pittsburgh? A: Ron Wilson, B: Marc Crawford, C: Someone Else?

from TSN,

The Pittsburgh Penguins are scheduled to talk to Marc Crawford and Ron Wilson about their head coaching vacancy, TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported on Tuesday.

Crawford was the head coach of the Quebec Nordiques, Colorado Avalanche, Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars and coached 529 games with the Vancouver Canucks....

Wilson, 59, coached four NHL teams over the last two decades, including the Anaheim Ducks, Washington Capitals, San Jose Sharks and Toronto Maple Leafs with a 648-561-101-91 record. He led the Capitals to the Stanley Cup Final in 1998.

both are horrible choices.  Obsolete coaches unable to adjust to the situation.  WHy not get don Cherry to coach, would probably win about the same amount of games haha.

Eddie Old’Dick.

He would be a perfect fit, as he kisses the Penguins and Blackhawks fanny’s every time he broadcasts their games. Another plus would be he would no longer be broad casting.

I will take D) Anyone else. I wouldn’t want either coach close to my team (pretty happy with Hartley anyway).
