I agree with him.
I tend to agree. Shero was in the Senators organization when Martin was the coach. Martin's coaching style is pretty much opposite of HCDB. I'd like to know what responsibilites Martin will have versus the other two assistant coaches. Does any other team in the NHL have three assistants?
10 teams in the NHL with three assistant coaches.
Edit: IIRC the Penguins spent many years with three assistant coaches.
