Paul Maurice.

It was not his fault for how Carolina performed over the last two years -- it was the GM/management. He got a lot out of a talent deprived team, even making it to the ECF in 2009 as a #6 seed where they upset New Jersey and Boston. Is it his fault that Rutherford signed Kaberle and let Corvo walk? Is it his fault that Carolina's offense has severely lacked top 6 talent for a number of years?

Look at their current roster and ask yourself if any of those forwards besides Staal and Skinner would be in the top 6 on any other quality, contending NHL roster. He's never really had top flight offensive talent, even when he went to the Cup with Carolina back in the early 2000's, his best offensive players were a 38 year old Ron Francis and Sami Kapanen who had some good years under Maurice but fizzled out quickly when he went to Philly.
