It's not just the coach, it's the players. I believe the downward spiral started with free agent signings. It's been our achillies heel since forever.
I find it funny when people complain about Gomez and Drury but when we signed them it was pandimonium around here....as if we had won the Stanley Cup. For whatever reason people are infatuated with big names.
I look at the most successful teams and they build almost completely from within (Devils and Detroit).They have great scouting and development programs. They also give their young players ice time and live with their early mistakes.
Accountability. If Gomez and Drury aren't performing as first line players, bench them or put them on the checking line for awhile. That may change their motivation to succeed.
