I don't get why 2 weeks before the lockout ended everyone agreed this was a bad team. After we signed Hecht all of a sudden we were a 4-8 team. It's a turn around year with 2 of the youngest centers in the league and an 18 year old rookie. I really don't think Regier threw this team together to be a contender. It's a team very much waiting on a prospect or two to develop and a few trades or signings to happen.
Lindy Ruff wasn't fired because he couldn't get a transition team to win. He was fired because he couldn't get a team in general to show up for any games. Much like 70% of last season, and 70% of the season before.
Give a new coach 2 years with what Regier gives him, If the team still sucks then, Regier can look for work elsewhere too.
