If Nothing Else Give Doug Gilmour Credit

He may never amount to much as a coach, however Doug Gilmour deserves a lot of credit for taking a job as a head coach in the OHL with Kingston. To go back to that level is a serious commitment from a guy like Doug. Bus trips, dealing with kids (and their parents) is not a glamorous life nor an easy one. I know lots of critics who said he would never do the right thing, take the necessary steps and learn how to be a coach from the bottom up. Well, he has show them hasn’t he.

Good on him

    We shall see… Her certainly has time. How long did it take Muller to get an NHL gig?

    This should put Dougie behind the Leafs bench as an assistant coach for the Cup run in 2011 – 2012!
