I didn't complain when he was fired, it was time to hire someone else at that time.

On the X's and O's portion of coaching, we had Terry Murray to assist and he did a great job. The proof is in the success the team had in the Stevens years.
If he's such a great coach, especially with young talented players, why doesn't he have a head coaching job now? Atlanta, St. Louis, Phoenix, Edmonton. There are plenty of teams budding with young talent that could use his talents to massage young players into studs like he did with Richards and Carter.

Could you IMAGINE what he could do with Hall, Eberle, Paajarvi??!?!?!!
