Again, coaches are hired to be fired. They should never be confused with players in terms of development. Let someone else iron out Disco's kinks. What we need is someone who actually wants to be a more skilled outfit. Only makes sense with 87 and 71 in fold.
I must say that I enjoy the Quenneville example. He won a cup the year after the Pens. If he's one and done this year and should be fired, then Bylsma should've been fired last year.
