I don't think JM was ever as terrible as some people made him out to be. I also don't put any blame on Randy as he's extremely inexperienced and was placed into a terrible situation and a lost cause. My question is: when do we start placing the blame on the people responsible for assembling this team? Why is it that people, like Claude Julien and Alain Vigneault, are sent packing when they are not the problem? We walked into this season with 50% of the defense combined having less than 1 season of NHL games played. One of them didn't even speak English. What exactly did we expect from that? A Stanley Cup?
I would love to have an amazing coach. If the managers in charge of filling the roster don't help him out though, he will be booted just like the rest of them, once again, relieving the people responsible for the problem in the first place. This has to stop.
Hopefully, by April 9, the house cleaning will be in motion big time.
