What has been troubling is the team's tendency to go on bad runs under his watch. The bad stretch to end the 07/08 season cost them the playoffs. The stretch last January was the worst in team history, and that's really saying something.

Are these simply anomalies, or do they say that he has a hard time adjusting his strategy on the fly to deal with the team's current conditions? The way the team was outplayed by Chicago would also be an indication of this.

Until Vigneault can prove that he can motivate and position his team to come out ahead in these "must-win" games, I'll have questions about his leadership. I think we all know that he can build a strategy for the team and execute on it, but when things start going off the rails he seems to have little to fall back on.
