Long story short, Lavi is this team's coach for the foreseeable future unless the team completely tanks (which could be said about most coaches in the league).
I second that. They definitely did better than I expected last year after those massive changes, and I know I'm not alone.

Edit @ TF83: Oh, and you know what doesn't happen as a fluke? Winning a Cup and then coming within one game of doing it again a few years later. Lavi is a good coach, and I have to question why you're trying to set him up as a scapegoat before a single game is played.

He has his flaws, but it's not his fault he can't rub his hands together and magically heal a battered roster.
