His system simply does not work in the playoffs.
Good teams are going to adjust and embarrass us (Boston, New Jersey)
Again, what I think this team needs over anything else and before any personnel moves are solid practices.
Well that and a number 1 D-Man. You simply aren't winning no Cup without a bona-fide, clearcut #1 rearguard.
Miss this year's playoffs? and finish near the bottom? Y'all familiar with the expression, "take 1 step back, 2 steps forward"
Yeah, I don't buy that. His system works regular season and postseason if you have players that are a fit for it. This team is not a good fit for his system. So you can A)fire the coach because the GM screwed up the dynamic of the team or B)try and put together a roster that is a fit.
I would go with B, but I'm not sure if I'd want Homer to do it. On one hand, he has an eye for talent and we've seen that he can overhaul a roster in a short period. On the other hand, he's screwed up pretty bad the last couple seasons. No easy answer here. It might be best to just try and let the team grow a little bit, but in this city and with this owner it always seems like do or die.
