By the time goaltender's get to the NHL, they don't (or shouldn't) need to be taught how to play the game. That's not what goalie coaches do. It's about tweaking things here and there, if they feel something needs tweaking.
Allaire was hardly, "falling on his own sword", as you so eloquently put, he's getting the hell out of dodge from a situation with two struggling goaltenders and a media faction putting all the blame entirely on him. Don't blame him in the least.
Nice to have fans from other teams here to spread disinformation, as always.
Allaire said that he had a conflict with the coaching staff as the reason for leaving and not the media who barely wrote anything about him.
