Harshness by coaches is overrated, in my opinion. Sometimes you get a jump when you go from Good Cop to Bad Cop but it rarely lasts.
Looking at Laviolette himself, he allegedly did great things at the Island. But then they backsludded. Did they turn him off?
Then he was totally awesome at Carolina!!!
For one year. Then they missed the playoffs two straight years. Did they turn him off?
Anyway, I don't want Laviolette to be fired.
I just thought it is time to talk about whether he is getting it done or not when it is clear that so many of the pathologies that indicate bad coaching have crept into prominence of late.
