Does anyone really believe that Capuano is respected by players the way an Arbour would be?

I'd LOVE to have a hall of fame coach behind the bench with this team.

Giving Capuano a pass because even "Arbour couldnt win with this line" up gives him a pass he hasn't earned.

Sorry.
As much respect as Al Arbour warrants, when he was given a bad lineup his teams played badly and gave up a lot of goals.

Do I think the team would have done slightly better? Yeah, but there's that whole 800 pound gorilla of "Little Talent" in the room. All I'm saying is there reaches a point when you have a coach fired every other year that he becomes a scapegoat.
