I's say by comparing what you see on the ice at the beginning of the season and what you see at the end of the season. Did they improve or was it a steady decline of performance - were the right adjustments made to the line-up. Add to that how disciplined the kids are on and off of the ice (are stupid penalties a problem throughout the season? Does the coach bench chronic behavioral problem kids?) and how the coach manages poor attitudes...also, does the coach have a consistent approach to the kids or does the coach play favorites.
If your kids playing and the team's winning, he's a good coach. Anything short of that and he's a POS.
Spoken like a true hockey parent. Winning at all cost, shortening the bench, recruiting ringers, playing a crapbag division, running up the score...sounds like you root for the Patriots.
