I think the biggest problem with this team for a number of yrs has been terrible goaltending especially in critical games. Second, most of the players not playing to their potential guys like Foligno, Regin, Shannon, Kovalev, Gonchar's (terrible start) etc.. I don't think anyone can pinpoint exactly why so many players all played so poorly at the same time, maybe it was because of the coach but they played well for him the yr before. And some players were getting older. Third, the coach made a number of rookie mistakes but his biggest problem seemed to be not coddling his star players. I guess he needed to improve his communication skills & learn to kiss the prima donna's *****. I think Clouston might get another shot in the NHL at some point but as an assistant coach.
