I know this is the wrong thread for it, but does this mean changes to the actual TEAM won't be made? Because even with a new coach, I don't have much faith in this team to succeed.
Not only has been successful in the minor leagues (losing Calder finals last year), but his player development has been outstanding.
Kadri, Frattin, Gardiner, Fraser, Kostka, Komarov, etc. It's not so much that he's changed their game, it just seems like every time we call up a player that player will exceed all expectations.
He also has the perfect attitude/approach where everyone respects him, but knows he isn't their friend. He also uses the same system as his NHL head coaches (Wilson/Carlyle), so he's been able to adjust quite well.
