I say it'd be easier on your head if you just eased up and let them play. Who knows, they may surprise you. But maybe you're just preparing yourself for the worst.

Anyhow, you keep saying fire TMac. Why don't you take it a step further and suggest some alternatives? Just saying Fire the Coach without suggesting a plan (i.e., candidates) is sort of the same as trying to call LZ out for not offering "anything constructive".
That's not my intention. I don't think the Sharks will miss the playoffs (I think there's an off-chance, which is pretty sad in itself) but I simply don't picture them going deep.

I did suggest some alternatives, but I don't have a firm grasp on all of the up and coming coaches out there because I do not get an opportunity to watch non nhl games.

I think Todd will be a good coach one day, but I don't think he's ready to be coaching a cup champion. Perhaps with some very experienced assistants he'd be much better off, I don't know. What I'm saying is the biggest issues we have are coaching issues. If you think it's Todd, fine, if you think its Shaw and Woodcroft, fine. I'm just not willing to blame the players at this point.
