At that point all blame is on him. He has misused every asset on this team and it has gotten to the point even Milbury and Jones literally laugh at the teams system.

Do they laugh at the players? **** no: they laugh at the down right hilarious **** the players are being told to do. Homers job is to get the best players available. Lavy is to use them to maximize the value. Homer went big and failed and got some side ****... So fire him? Haha. No. Fire the guy who's trying to use gervais as a pinching offensive puck moving rushing d man. Not the person who brought him in, over one crappy FA period.
You're right. Laviolette should be leaning on Coburn to be the primary puck-mover this team craves. Oh, yeah, he is abysmal this season (more than normal) at carrying the puck. Maybe Grossmann or Schenn could? No, that wouldn't be maximizing their value. If only this team had a young defenseman with some offensive upside they could call up from Adirondack. Someone who has gotten his feet wet with the Flyers and hasn't looked completely lost. Who would that be?

Funny, though, that McGuire was calling out the players for not executing, and I didn't hear Jones or Milbury giving the players a free pass.
