Yeo's seat is certainly much warmer this year.

The real question for me is, can we find someone brilliant to pick up the reins immediately? St. Louis dumped some their no-name after only one full season and a string of really sloppy games...but they brought in Hitchcock, who won the Jack Adams and finally squeezed out the talent everyone knew St. Louis was sitting on. The Kings brought in Darryl Sutter after a mediocre 33 game stretch to start the season and look where that got them.

So history suggests that it's not ridiculous to ask if a midseason coaching change will finally get a team most of us can agree is talented enough to start playing consistently and cleanly. If there's not a slam dunk out there, though, then stay the course and see if Yeo can right the ship. No use replacing him with another gamble.
