And let's not think the sky is falling. It's hasn't even been 2 years since a 27 game winning streak at WC.....you don't do that without all the right pieces in place (NHL + KHL).
Good coaches have the ability to evolve and change. BZ became arrogant and complacent and it was evident during the olympics. Remember the olympic summer camp? While Canada was having an intense and serious camp, BZ held a light scrimmage for the entertainment of fans with Zakharkin saying "We're fine, we know how Canadians play" . It's no wonder the team was steamrolled. Ovechkin even said they receive more preparation for regular season NHL games.
It's not the players. BZ have become stale and need to go.
