Makes it pretty clear that Gulutzan isn't going to be fired during the season, which I agree isn't going to happen. People can put that thought out of their minds.
Good article, but the article doesn't criticize a main gripe I have against this organization vis-a-vis the ambivalent nature of the message from the organization during JN's tenure. What is "patience" according to GMJN? Did firing a head-coach and his replacement, the first chance he got, indicate patience? Did the goal to make the playoffs during the bankruptcy years and dealing away a sniper and a PMD for an above-average PMD indicate patience? Are the additions of temporary offensive pieces in Langenbrunner, Ryder, Jagr, and Whitney any indications of patience? Is playing a goaltender, whose groin is tweaked, on successive nights any indication of patience? No, the management does want to make the playoffs despite the glaringly obvious fact that the defense is arguably the weakest in the WC and simply cannot compete even if they squeak in. Maybe they want us to be patient with the "rebuild" while they try "making the playoffs" and keep failing at that with a coach who keeps insisting on playing useless veterans over youth because.....who the **** knows?!
