On one hand, there's merit to believing the players wouldn't perform any differently under new management because of their personalities, skill limits, etc.; on the other hand, it's hard to dispute the notion that the coach's message has become stale and that tasking the same GM who built the current roster to now retool it into a better team is just guaranteeing the same mediocre results in the future.
What the actual problem is isn't what I was getting after. Week after week after week Black has talking about patience and how they want to move ahead with Regier and Ruff. Lately he changed his message a little and has been talking about how they'll be willing to ship "core" players out if it's needed. Why hasn't the message changed about your entire organization? If you're honestly committed to winning (which I believe they really are), why is your entire organization not being looked at? If you're willing to say to the media that you're not afraid to make changes to the "core" of your player roster, why can't you also have the balls to say you're willing to do the same to your front office? Nobody's saying he has to come out and say Regier and Ruff suck and have to go, just make a statement about how winning is the ultimate goal, they'll do whatever is required to reach that goal and because of that the entire organization is under review and everyone is being looked at, front office included.
