I think that's partially true...
too often you can't fire the players. Yeah, you can replace them with young, hungry guys, but that alone doesn't translate to wins and you may end up rushing guys who aren't ready to be playing in the NHL. So what's your option? Fire the coach. If it's a coach liked by the team, well, hopefully they feel remorse because 9 times out of 10 they realize it was them that sucked and they get off their collective arses and get going. Heck, Jersey fired Ftorek when the team was tops in the league and in a bit of a funk in March, and ended up champions. It's a last-ditch effort when you realize there's not much more to do.
