Who would know best, that playing with 2 young goalies with less than 100 NHL games experienced combined is a potential formula for disaster better than the goalie coach?.
The writing is on the wall, and with no veteran goalie reinforcements coming in as was promised, this is now a situation which opens the goalie coach to more criticism as its setting him up for failure rather than success.
Allaire might have been the one pushing hardest internally for help and when he didn't get it, has decide to pull the pin himself.
Signature: There is no greater demonstration of Fan patience then to suggest to "Play the Kids " and be willing to accept the consequences of those actions..
