Some people really fail to grasp just how dismal a situation he was thrust into. Dealing with ego's & managing the "human" side of an NHL locker room is one of the most difficult aspects of being a head coach, & thanks to PG/Molson, RC stepped into his first taste of being an NHL bench boss with his legs completely cut out from under him.
The problem is LOFT. Some people are caught in the notion that the team is only a line combination or a timeout away from winning every game, but the situation is dire from a talent point of view. That's why I don't agonize over the coaching situation, that position becomes more critical only after the more important things are addressed.
First one being replacing the guy who needs to replace the talent that needs to be coached.
