Certainly a valid point to make. Being a tennis player , I'm not qualified to judge our coaches.
Timmins is a god here at HF. He is beyond reproach.

And I am not sure of the reason for that undying love.

Timmins has done a very good job of drafting players who make it to the NHL. The problem is that most of them are marginal at best. Yes, he has chosen some winners but the biggest majority are the Chipchuras, Maxwells, Stewarts, D"Agostinis, Higgins' found in the NHL.

Average players with little impact.

I think we need a change. I get hammered every time I say this. However, I do not see a big improvement. Leblanc worries me. So does Nattinen and Avtsin.

That combined with the most inept management for a decade has set this franchise back tremendously. Hamilton is struggling mightily.

One can only hope that his draft picks in the last 3 or 4 years pan out. I grow tired of hoping though.

To the OP, Paul Mara is playing in the AHL and possibly could be available...........oooops. Gauthier left.
