Listen, I'm happy Hitch is doing well in St. Louis.
Umm.. Yeah... Right...
Chapter done, turn the page. Hitch is a great HC. The premise that he can't coach in the new NHL has been debunked. It was a foolish statement at the time, especially with the team he took into the playoffs. The problems with this team at that time were deeper than the head coach, as we confirmed later. Howson did more than contribute to his downfall. Did Hitch hold some blame? Sure, he made his fair share of mistakes. Was a head coaching change needed? No. The problems started at the top. The responsible thing would have been to allow the next GM to decide his fate.
Yeah, there is revisionism and you contribute to it.
He's in a better place. Good for him. I look forward to the next time his team struggles and the same conversations come out again.
Now, let's talk about people that are actually with the team instead of revisiting the past.
