BB had definitely lost the room. The team wasn't playing hard, wasn't sticking to his system, and was getting destroyed night in and night out.
Didn't they get destroyed 7-0 by the Rangers the previous year to lose 5 in a row? He didn't lose the team then it seemed.
They could have easily turned it around under him. They really didn't play all the much better overall under Hunter and haven't had results under Oates.
Seems like a personnel issue more than coaching IMO
