God, that's all we need. For Lacroix to go through coaches like Lou Lamoriello.
I'm definitely mad at Tony G though. The PK at times shows some aggressive play, but then it reverts to the same ol' passive box BS it has been for years. One thing that's really sticking in my craw is the fact that he's continually experimenting with PP and PK units. Uh, yeah, Tony? That's what PRESEASON is for! :mad:
I'm also mad that he has no idea what a transition game is. Call Lemaire boring all you want, but if he had the talent Granato has at his disposal the Avs would be undefeated right now. Lemaire employs the trap, yes, but he uses it to set up his forwards and get the puck going the other way. Fast.
Possible replacements should Granato continue to struggle through the remainder of October? Bob Hartley. Oh, he's not available? Yeah, that's right, he's currently enjoying success in Atlanta. Dumb move, Lacroix.
All right, seriously, I suppose Ted Nolan's name will come up sooner or later, but I'd rather see someone like Peter Laviolette. He got a raw deal in Long Island.
