Coaches have always held a special part of hockey lore.

Some coaches, like Don Cherry, are known for being colorful. Some made innovations, like Roger Neilsen, who became known as "Captain Video" for using videotape to scout opponents' tendencies.

Most fondly remembered are the coaches who just won. Guys like Toe Blake, Al Arbour, Scotty Bowman, Glen Sather and Punch Imlach are best known for sustained excellence and leading teams to multiple Stanley Cup championships.

So here is a team-by-team look at the best coach in each club's history. Some of these are bound to cause a little controversy. Feel free to disagree, but let me know why you feel your pick is the better choice.

I hope you enjoy this look at each NHL team's best coach.
