I don't think Crawford is a bad coach, he was a bad coach for the Kings at the time. His system is more designed for veteran players and is probably going produce a division winner this season. I think he was probably fired because he and Lombardi are in totally different area codes when it comes to what style to play. I think DL and TM are on the same page as far as how they think the team should be built and what style they want to play.

I obviously don't agree with the grinding out 2-1 games, build from the goal line out strategy, but it is what it is and thats the way the Kings are going to play as long as Murray and Lombardi are here. That's why I find it funny how people want Murray gone and expect things to totally change. If Murray is fired all the Kings will do is bring in another dead puck defensive coach like Hitchcock and the system won't change.
