The Edmonton Oilers dramatically transformed their season after a coaching change in November, and franchise legend Paul Coffey played a big role in this turnaround.

It has recently been revealed that Paul Coffey will not be returning as assistant coach for the Oilers.
Hearing Coffey won't be back behind the bench

While disappointing, it's understandable as Coffey had already been well retired before he decided to come back for the Oilers. He had a huge impact on the team.
Coffey's leadership style, marked by his initial reluctance to assume authority, proved highly effective. His influence helped produce the best defensive results for the Oilers in years, particularly evident in the offensive breakout of Evan Bouchard, who seemed to emulate Coffey's playing style.
Coffey's rare media interactions were impactful, highlighting his extensive experience and the success he witnessed firsthand with the Oilers. He emphasized the importance of every player contributing, not just the stars.
If Coffey indeed leaves, it would be a significant loss for the team, though understandable. His coaching tenure may have been brief, but leading the team to a Cup Final is a remarkable achievement, adding another highlight to his legendary career.
