Just to add as well, I think the whole idea that TNSE will be ultra-loyal to Noel might be a little bit of a fallacy.

Yes, it's true they barely changed coaches in their Moose days, but it's really not analogous. The Moose missed they playoffs what, twice in their entire existence? And one of those was the gong show first year with Jean Perron as head coach. Not to mention the coaches they employed were top notch for the AHL level.

I like Noel and feel confident with him going forward, but I don't think his job security is appreciably greater than any NHL coach.
