Look at the Devils series. He could not adjust his game to beat the Devils. His solution was mix up the lines, and the Devils took advantage of this. If we keep playing like ****, I say fire him.
You guys keep saying our D is terrible, blah blah blah. On paper (with a healthy mezaros) Id say we have a pretty deep D core. Are you telling me Willie mitchell, Rob Scuderi and Matt Greene are that much better than even Meszaros? Its a bad system that is being run, its an absolutely terrible defensive system.
How has he been around for more than 2 years, and been successful, if that is all it takes to figure him out? He's the type of coach that has a short life span because of how he coaches, but not because he's a bad coach. Bad coaches don't take the Islanders to the playoffs, or win a cup, and get back to it later.
His time here might be up, but when he goes somewhere else he'll be successful.
