Prev 19 of 28 Next
Answer > Dan Bylsma Pittsburgh Penguins 21%

Anybody who saw the first version of the HBO 24/7 series knows why Bylsma is tops in this category... He is calm, cool and collected as well as positive ... Interesting to note that of the top-six finishers in this category Mike Babcock (4th), John Tortorella (5th) and Todd McLellan (6th) also appear on the most demanding to play for list.
