Well, I'm not arguing that. There are very few coaches around who have on ice success and are good at developing players. When in rebuild mode, you get the best devlopment coach there is, because that is what is good for the long term. Screaming about losses during this period makes no sense to me. Having patience with a rebuilding teams means you allow the coach to do things which might hurt the standings a little bit today, but will be good for the player/team in the future.
