Tell that to Scotty Bowman, #1 on the list of NHL coaches, in terms of all-time games coached, with 2,141.

Murray unhappy with players and fans " LA Kings Insider
MURRAY: "You know what the most disappointing, frustrating thing was? At the end of the second period, we were booed off the ice by our fans. That is the most embarrassing thing I have ever been through. That’s the worst I’ve ever been through, in all the years I’ve been coaching. I’ve been behind the bench almost 3,000 hockey games in the NHL, and booed off the ice by your own fans at the end of the second period, here after this road trip, going 4-0 in hard places, very disappointing."

Terry Murray has coached 971 games in the NHL. This is 21st all-time, nothing to sneeze at. If he had coached 3000 games, he would have to have been coaching 82 game seasons without a break since 1974.
