Absolutely. And, how many years + 3 games does this have to go on?

As long as we are on the topic, here is a quote from Melrose (yea, I know). Sorry if it was posted in a thread I missed.

"There was talk over the last year that ownership wanted to fire the coach, but Pleau said, "If you fire him, you fire me." Obviously, the Blues ended up not firing Quenneville, and they finished the season well. Pleau is such a calm stable influence there. But this is a situation where the Blues are going to be punished for being good, because good isn't good enough. Ownership wants bigger results than just making the playoffs and getting a few more home games."
