Coaching stats[edit]

I suspect that in 1969-70, he may not have coached all 72 games for Tulsa, if he managed to still play 7 games for the Leafs that year. Granted the NHL then was playing 76-game seasons, but still seems unlikely that would allow him to play 7 games for Toronto and coach 72 for Tulsa. Echoedmyron (talk) 21:21, 30 December 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm not entirely sure how that worked, but in two sources I have, he is credited as the coach in all 72 games. It is very likely a case of the leagues simply not being as granular in the statistics as they are now. Similarly, Pronovost was the coach on the bench for eight games with the Red Wings in 1980, but Ted Kennedy is officially credited as the coach of those games. Resolute 03:42, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
