If the team is still terrible in two years, yeah, throw Regier under the bus. But to do so before that when he's been playing the long game for a good couple years now? Yeah, doesn't seem like the greatest idea.
Coaching to win now is developing talent.
This morning on Ottawa radio Pierre McGuire said this was the wrong thing to do and that Ruff is not the problem, and really surprised the way it happened.
You can hear it later as a pod cast if interested on the team1200.com McGuire podcast. But he seemed kinda ticked.
