Yzerman out in Tampa Bay after the Sochi Olympics.
Spoken like someone who doesn't know **** about Tampa!

Not doubting Jon Cooper is a great coach. But, so was Boucher at the AHL level. NHL is different!

After this TB needs to bring in a veteran NHL coach. Surely one or both of Lacroix and Raymond will be gone with Boucher come seasons end. Frantz should join them as well as he is the one directly associated with the goalies (TB's biggest issue over the last 3 yrs)

Hire:

HC-Lindy Ruff
AC-Ulf Samuelsson...coach D
AC-Keep Steve Thomas...help fwd
GC-Andy Moog, Tom Barasso, Olaf Kolzig, Grant Fuhr etc...

All assistant coaches have contracts that expire at end of this season. Boucher had one more year.

Clean sheet for next season.
