I'm not sure another coach would get much more out of this group.

Yeah, he should have moved Morrow off the first line earlier in the game or season, but that wouldn't have mattered tonight. Benn and Jagr played like crap, so there was no linemate to rescue their poor performances.
True ... but they only gave him 2 years with a 3rd year option for a reason. It's hard to say he's done enough to earn a 3rd year. With the same results and an even weaker team ... Crawford didn't get the benefit of the doubt.

I wasn't sure that it would be playoffs or fired for Gully and GM Joe early on, but it seems like that could a reality.
