When the Philadelphia Flyers hired Alain Vigneault, Michel Therrien and Mike Yeo to take over coaching duties there was a lot of doubters.
Many people believed it was just a random mix of washed up coaches, however they clearly proved the doubters wrong.
Vigneault and his crew had the Flyers in a full turnaround from the last couple of years.
The staff has lots of fan approval and it also has approval from a Flyers' legend.
Bobby Clarke recently spoke with Sam Carchidi of The Inquirer and pointed at the coaching staff for the turnaround.
“It was a really well-coached hockey team,” Clarke said from his home in Sarasota, Fla. “I really enjoyed watching this team; it’s one of the better-coached teams we’ve had for a while now.”
“They had good goaltending, the defense was good, the forwards were good,” he added. “I think it was one of those teams where you can’t base the players’ performances on statistics.”
“They just did things right,” Clarke said. “Everybody contributed, everybody was important. They were a tough team to play against.”
What do you think of Clarke's comments?
