These were Coach Parker's comments shortly before he was released:

"I thought there were times when Bennett looked like he was gonna get to a point where he was coming along," Parker said in an interview last month. "He looked better, a little more relaxed and a little more confident.

"But at the same time, I still don't think we got great goaltending in the second semester. We were not happy with the goaltending all year. It was a little bit better, and we got by with what we got. Benny got better as the season progressed, but there was a lot of pressure on him when Gillespie went out. A whole bunch of things added up to the fact that it got better, but still wasn't good enough."
