I don't want a new, inexperienced coach trying to learn the ins and outs of the NHL and 29 other teams to be the next excuse.
Good news is that it's a shortened season. And we already stink. I don't think we can be much worse, so he can use this season as a learning tool. If the players respond at all and we look better, yet still lose, he could still be hired next year. But the team has to look more motivated.
