if you WANT to see a rebuild, and not more plugging of the holes on a sinking ship, then firing the GM NOW, is a HUGE gain.
That's only true if you want to replace Regier with a GM who's not working for another organization. Toronto isn't going to let Dudley come over in February, Pitt isn't going to release Botterill, etc.
I want a new GM to have TOTAL say over whatever direction they go. That means leaving as many big moves available to him as possible. Firing Regier and Ruff isn't going to activate the rebuilding process unless they plan on hiring Neil Smith and Randy Carlyle.
Firing Ruff and Regier during the season serves no point but to embarrass them beyond the embarrassment that this season already his. I hope Pegula and Black run this team thoughtfully, not spitefully.
