It doesn't take any stones to continue doing the same thing and expecting different results. I think there is a saying for people that do that... And what heat is Lombardi getting?

Well, 3 or 4 games doesn't tell you much, but the final 50 or so games would give you a huge indication if some major roster changes are in order.

If the Kings continue to score around 2 goals per game after a coaching change, then the Kings never had the roster to win with in the first place. Murray is not the kind of coach that gets the most out of a roster, so if the players really aren't as good as we think, then it doesn't matter if Murray is fired this week versus April.

Would you rather see Kopitar or Brown traded before Murray is removed, this is the kind of roster shakeup that is equivalent to a coaching change? Trading Penner and/or Martinez isn't going to get you a difference maker.
