This news really surprised me, but I guess they're in desperation mode here. Really doesn't make sense when their playoff hopes in a shortened strange season are remotely gone. I think he was far from the issue that they're having in Tampa.
He brought them one game from the Stanley Cup Finals two years ago. Besides two years ago since their Stanley Cup win in '04, they've always had the same problem. Horrible goaltending for one, which I don't know why they thought a young still unproven goaltender in Lindback would save them. Their defense has been a bit improved, but overall they have an offensive defense. Besides their top players of Stamkos, St. Louis, and Lecavalier and I guess you can maybe throw in Purcell and Malone to the mix, the rest of the forwards aren't going to score often.
Until they fix these holes, no coach is going to help them become top contenders. This may make them better for the remainder of the season, which is good for us and would help our chances with the rank. It's fine with me if these issues keep happening as they'll still be in a division with us next season.
