Well, firing Jacques Martin in the middle of the season only to replace him with a rookie coach that was clearly not ready for the NHL was a bad move. I have no doubt that we wouldn't have finished 28th with Martin. Though, if it was to finish somewhere around the Sabres and the Jets, it's not that bad to have a lottery pick instead. But that was not Gauthier's plan.
Without any quality coach to replace Martin, Gauthier should have waited until the end of the season. Same with Cammalleri for that matter. At least, wait until the trade deadline. Gauthier's panic moves really drove the team to the basement. When all is said and done, that allows us for a fresh start, so it's not so bad !
