As in years past, Norway will not have a coach on the sidelines for the 2011 tournament. It's been this way every single year and I doubt it will change any time soon. Without a coach Norway has won the Cup and made the playoffs in three of five years.
I'm not saying that this would work for every single team, but why is it that most squads feel its necessary to have someone on the bench now? Can't teams figure it out on their own in a tournament where you get to pick who you play with? Are there any teams besides Norway that don't have a coach right now?
