Yeah, this is completely whatever to me. By all accounts he wasn't that great over there despite what Holmgren and co. were saying (Emery specifically stated that he wasn't NHL ready having played against him). You add in the clear attitude problem or whatever is going on... and you wind up at whatever.

BCF16 has some serious hate for the coach up there, but I'm not sure it's fair to ask questions of him on this front... Bodrov has a whole crate full of his own problems we need to work through before we start blaming other people.
