That's highly debatable. What they have is a HOF Coach who has GOTTEN RID OF players who didn't match his intensity and demanding style.
Yeah, I saw them the beginning of the season and they were one of the worst hockey teams I've ever seen in the NHL. Gretzky deserves some credit--and I'm not a huge fan of his. Of course, getting handed Bryz didn't hurt either.
Which leads me to my next question.... do we have the right COACHING STAFF in place? Malarchuk's Luongo/Leclaire credentials are gold. But Ags and Noel in my opinion, should be replaced. They are the equivalent of third liners -
role players when we need allstars. In particular, I'd like to see some coaches with Energy and Fire. I've watched Ags and Claude at practices. They're laid back.
Its not their style I'm bothered by, its the lack of competence. Our power play is horrible--that's Ags responsibility. Claude also seems clueless (i.e. the infamous "two goals" quote). Hitch needs to sack both of them.
