The team has no chance at success under this structure. It has been great for Kerby and his individual achievements. I don't fault him for that it's management who has let the fundamentals of what Spitfire hockey was to erode on every level. And in turn really didn't do Kerby any good in installing the qualities and details to be a professional hockey player.
Putting up big numbers, playing with the best players, being put in the optimum situations with all the accolades isn't going to be entitled like it is now at the next levels when it has to be earned and earned consistently.
The Rychel era could have worked. Heck the Hunter's made it work with Dylan the most talented out of the trio (Logan, Garrett). Of course Dylan wasn't the man who had to carry the load he had the supporting cast through his career with guys like Perry, Schremp, Fritsche, Sheppard, Bolland, Kostitsyn etc.. With the Spits Rychel doesn't have that supporting cast with the exception of Khokhlachev. Some of these other guys like Johnson, Vail and Marchese are being paraded around like top line players when in reality they are 3rd line guys.
