Yup, lots of experience... 15 years in fact. We'll see what he's put in charge of. He used to be a defensive forward specialist as a player. I'm sure that he'd be beneficial to guys like Podkolzin, Hoglander, Lind, Motte and Highmore.
He was pretty decent offensively too. The reason he got the head coaching position was because he was excellent in his role as an assistant. He's an excellent choice as an assistant who can take over if Green falters out of the gate.
