28 doesn't seem like very many coaches for a team as old as the Red Wings.  Canucks are already at 20.


Jack Adams was the head coach for 20 years 1927-47.

Bowman was 9 years.

Babs was 10. 

Sid Abel for 10+1.

Tommy Ivan for 7 years.

Looking at his amateur record: he just knows how to win, which is very similar to Cooper and Bednar.  Plus, Yzerman is familiar with him; and he is someone the young Redwings can (perhaps) grow with cause there is no guarantee the roster will click with him but his resume alone should give him instant credibility, among the young players. 


Offtopic: McDonough to Redwings ?
