Which NHL head coach would you most like to play for?

Mike Babcock, Red Wings.....16%
Ted Nolan, Islanders.....10%
Wayne Gretzky, Coyotes.....8%
Joel Quenneville, Avalanche.....7%
Andy Murray, Blues.....4%
Brent Sutter, Devils.....4%
Jacques Lemaire, Wild.....4%
Randy Carlyle, Ducks.....4%
John Paddock, Senators.....3%
Lindy Ruff, Sabres.....3%
Mike Keenan, Flames.....2%

[Based on a survey of 365 NHL players] 

FAST FACTS: None of these top vote-getters have won a Stanley Cup behind the bench.... Through Sunday the Islanders, Coyotes and Blues were all well outside playoff position; the Avalanche was eighth in the West.... Nolan (1997) and Quenneville (2000) have won a coach of the year award.

This is an expanded version of the NHL poll from the March 31, 2008 issue of Sports Illustrated.
