Keith Yandle himself has more talent than anybody on this team except Hank.
When you take everything into account we should been a playoff team this year given the actual events that unfolded around our team and the league. If you don't agree, that's fine with me, different perspectives.

Oh wait, they already have jobs.
There are plenty of candidates that have followed in their footsteps waiting for the chance, those two are just examples of coaches who make the best with what they have. They also have brought along as much young talent as Torts, which also doesnt get mentioned in regards to the job they're doing.

The grass is always greener until you win something and then you can start talking about how so and so has regressed and how the team needs new blood, etc etc
Tippett has done amazing things with one of the lowest payrolls(only one other team in the bottom half of NHL payrolls even made the playoffs) and leading the league in ownership problems, I find it pretty weak of you to blast him for getting ousted by a much deeper Wings team.

5 on 5 the Yotes couldnt match the Wings, scored 4 even strength goals in 4 games and Bryzgalov was nothing like himself in the series if you cared to watch any of it. PP was clicking at 55% after game 1 which is pretty damn good. And he's forced to ride just as many young guys as Torts, so results were pretty much the same.
