This has to be drilled into some people's heads. If he loses the team, then we replace him. Not until then.
Switching coaches yet again will result in more tire spinning and less development. One of the main constants of Sather's early tenure was the musical coaches. Every season it was someone new. Trottier, Low, Sather, Muckler. You can't do that. Teams don't work well in this environment. The first development we saw recently was under Renney - who was coach for three full seasons.
Now, there is no "Keenan Solution" around the corner. We don't have a Messier, Graves, Leetch, Richter core. We need to build and a coach who exerts his influence by demanding responsibility, aggressive play and accountability is just what we need right now.
