a decent 7/10.

Positives:
The accountability that he holds the players to is something that's been much needed for this organization. He won't just toss out ice time to players based on role, you have to perform to keep earning it.

Good about giving young players (well maybe not Boychuk) the opportunity to show what they can in an appropriate role rather then just sticking them on the 4th line and saying "ok, produce or you're back in the AHL"

Negatives:
The team right now seems to wilt against an opponent that will try to physically impose their will on them. Results against more physical teams in Boston and Philly this season vs the results against Ottawa, Buffalo, and Toronto bare this out. This isn't entirely on Kirk, but the mental toughness, when push comes to shove... literally, seems to be a bit lacking.
