You win with consistency on the ice, but you need stability with the HC as well. That's why I want him to stay on. People were *****ing about MT and I remember my buddy saying DB is a hell of a coach after they won the Cup. I told him, just give it time and people will call for his head to... Same with the next guy and round and round we go.
DB wants his rookies to step up and take the bull by the horns, but he has to lead by example. He needs to start benching vets for poor play and become a better disciplinarian, because that is an obvious weakness he has. Very obvious.
The problem is Jiggy, you and I both know what happens when you start benching vets. THAT is when the room starts turning on you, especially when as a "vet" you've earned the benefit of the doubt of more than a handful of games, especially under some very unique circumstances with the late start and no training camp.
