Habsterix was talking about rookie coaches, not old veteran coaches. Big difference.

Vigneault, went back down to refine his coaching.
Julien, got fired from Jersey, by the great Lamou, just a few games before the POs despite bringing his team to a 2nd place finish.
Therrien, got fired again and can't get a new job.
Carbo, had a chance to redeem himself with the U-18, and lead Canada's team to, if I remember correctly, their worst tournament outing to date.

Right, we should have been more patient with these guys..
Meanwhile, the man that has more than 1300 games of experience (obviously if he has so much experience is because he's mediocre), has a much shorter leash..

Habsterix was against the signing since day 1. There was no leash.

You'll have a tough time arguing that our team could have done better than what they have done these past two years given the injuries. We surpassed expectations, yet that's still insufficient. You don't like his style, fine. That doesn't mean he's a bad or mediocre coach.
