Unless you're dealing w/ a reclamation project (like Mike Smith in PHX for example) or a young goalie, I don't think the goaltending coach bears much responsibility. It's kind of like firing the hitting coach in baseball and expecting a group of under-performing veteran players to all of the sudden turn it around. Position coaches are most useful w/ young players and/or when you're changing schemes.
We're just recycling excuses at this point. We're seeing whatever one people buy. Whatever makes people sleep better at night.
