Sorry are you saying the Murrays and Melnyk are NOT associated with Bingo? Have you heard or seen anything in writing from any players or coaches from that team indicating there was discord in the room caused by Cameron? Does anyone out there have any "unbiased facts" that would bear out the statement that the room was in total chaos? please show us if anyone does.

I think you are under estimating the value added a good coach brings to a team.
I'm not underestimating it. I'm just saying that the players have a lot more to do with performance than the coach. You can have Scotty Bowman coaching an ECHL team, and they still would end up in last place in the NHL. Give him a competitive team and maybe he has a chance. Cameron had zero to work with on that place team.
