I think, at least as the roster stands, that DW is on a three year "retooling" program. We're in year two right now. I think that next season is where we'll start seeing the end result. If the team gets into the playoffs and gets something done, that's a bonus.

A few games ago I was all for letting koala go, but I'm starting to believe the issues with the team are largely personnel related - players not willing to adjust their game or just not executing.

Hopefully DW is able to turn the impending UFAs into some new assets. The Clowe playing injured and Murray playing every day thing makes no sense unless the sole purpose is to protect the players you're going to hold onto.
