Well, I think it's pretty clear now that Andy Murray
may quite possibly be the worst coach in the history of the National Hockey League, and Davis Payne
is unequivocally the greatest coach in the history of said league.
What's that? You don't believe me? The record is clear: under Murray, the 2009 St. Louis Blues were 17-17-6, a .500 team languishing in the lower ranks of the Central Division. Under Davis Payne, on the other hand, the 2010 St. Louis Blues are 3-2-1; project that out to a full season and the Blues are a 41-27-14 team. That's a 96 point team. Need I say more? Under Murray, the Blues were a .500 team. Under Payne, they're a borderline juggernaut. Davis Payne is clearly the greatest coach who has ever lived.
Well, okay, so perhaps it's a little too early to anoint Davis Payne a Hall of Famer just yet. Still, the Blues have now won three games in a row, none more impressive than their shutout of the Minnesota Wild last night at the Scottrade Center.
