2. Brian Trottier

Note to future NHL coaches: Your first coaching job should never be for the New York Rangers. This is especially true when you’re a former Islander.

Listen, respect goes to Trottier as a player. The the former Islander won four Stanley Cups during the early 80’s and was an instrumental part to their success.

But Wayne Gretzky would agree that being a great player doesn’t always translate to coaching.

Trottier was canned after just 54 games, posting a 21–26–6–1 record with a 45.4 winning percentage.

I've been a die hard Rangers and Giants fan for as long as I can remember. I enjoy sharing opinions, and hearing from fans that love their teams just as much as I do. Henrik Lundqvist makes all of us look like mere mortals. E-mail me at: [email protected]
