Look at the successful coaches in the NHL right now they're mild mannered, fun to be around but disciplined and don't really chew out players in the media unless it's really necessary.

That's just the way I see things right now with him... players aren't getting better and top picks are regressing. Players seems to be ignoring things. Retool work on some things and calm down behind the bench. Players feed off there coach and being animated and yelling constantly doesn't lead to success when you have a fragile group to begin with.
This post is bang on. Exaclty the conversation I was looking to get churning. I agree completely. Surprise more don't feel that way....but I do get it, that the issues are on the ice with the players...but sometimes you have to look at the top down.
I think a fresh start would benefit all.
