Right or wrong, the optics of changing course so quickly, especially when it takes you from being controversially strong to suddenly Flyer-weak at a critical position, is a path the team cannot make.

Good or bad it's Price or bust from here on in.
The only way this could/would/should happen is if the Canadiens completely sweep away all of the coaching staff and management.

Clean slate in a new direction.
