Now we need a coach to put it all together. It's quite obvious who's to blame at this point. Regier's poor transactions/rosters of the past have been well documented, but I think he has done exactly what I wanted our GM to do in terms of setting this team up to succeed down the road in 2,3, 4 years.
Gimme a coach who will ride the top line, especially Vanek, and play him 20+ mins/gm. Give me the coach who knows how to motivate his players with a combination of coddling and tough love. The coach who knows which of his guys need to be on the ice in whatever the situation calls for.
I agree 100%
I grew tired of Ruff last year, but I wasn't sure if it was injuries or coaching. Now it's painfully obvious. I despise the way this team plays. Myers-Leo is a prime example of why he is a bad coach for this team.
