Reasons for and Against New Jersey Devils Making Scott Stevens Their Next Coach

March 30th, 2015 by Adam Braun Leave a reply »
Scott Stevens is a New Jersey Devils legend. As the Devils' fiery, talented captain, he led the team to three Stanley Cup championships.

Could Stevens lead the Devils to success once again, this time as a head coach?

As he has spent the second half of this season in an unorthodox situation, co-coaching New Jersey with Adam Oates, he is one of the most visible candidates to take over the Devils' head-coaching vacancy. Stevens' assignment has been to work with the defensemen, while Oates has worked with the forwards.

On Friday, I examined the possibility of Oates taking over the head-coaching position next season, finding that he deserves to be a candidate, but certainly is not running away with the job. Does Stevens have better odds?

This list will examine the factors in play in Stevens' candidacy to be the Devils' next head coach. Much like Oates, he is a definite option for New Jersey, but he may have holes in his resume too big to ignore.
