If they all signed up for that, then IMO it's disingenuous to fire the GM for basically just doing exactly what you wanted him to do.

Renney was dead man walking here the moment he pulled that goalie in the Calgary game and the CBC cameras cut to Hall's reaction. I knew right then and there that he wasn't going to be renewed here. I also think his failure to develop Paajarvi and get much out of Hemsky/Belanger/Eager also contributed a lot.
So the team WAS expected to do better?

Yay or nay?

Again, if so then Tambo has no business being extended.

Im not a fan of Renney, and the game/play you selected as an example was inexcusable.

But what about Tambo's mistakes?

Signing Barker? Foster? Khabibulin?

Trading Brodziak for sock tape?

For every mistake you can attribute to Renney, Im sure you could find two or three for Tambellini.
