Undisciplined penalties and disorganization on the ice are signs of poor coaching. No back checking, mental mistakes, and losing puck battles is on ten players. So IMO you have a poorly run system or players aren't buying in. Either way the coach needs to go. Anyone watching the last 7 games calling for trades thinking any one player is going to fix the team wide slop on the ice is deluding themselves. No player plays 60 minutes. Unfortunately with the compressed schedule, any coaching change would be pretty fruitless as there is no real practice time to institute a new system.
Disclaimer: I don't like Laviolette. His emotional jam act has wears thin after a while. I think cerebral coaches who are calm on the bench like Babcock and Byslma are better.
