Re: Kompon

I did a little research on Kompon a couple of weeks ago.
There's not much evidence to say he's the problem. Although, it's difficult to say how much he was involved in the power play every year, here are some stats:

St Louis went from 7th to 4th to 9th to 27th in his years there, 01-05.
Meanwhile, Kings went 1st to 18th to 27th to 28th in those years.

St Louis was 29th and 30th the 2 years after he left.
Kings were 10th 17th 14th 7th and now 25th since his arrival.

The only thing that I've always noticed was when Tippett left after 01 it dropped off significantly.

While Dallas went from 18th the year before he got there in '02 to 4th, 11th, 2nd, 4th, 7th, 8th. Then fell to 22nd the year after he left.

Phoenix was 23rd and 21st before he got there, and now 4th, and 14th since he arrived.

That's why I was hoping the Kings would get him back after Dallas fired him.
