If we're buying out Olli so Noel doesn't make stupid decisions, doesn't that mean we should get rid of Noel instead?
That would also be acceptable...

Is the team much improved from last year? Not at all!

SA/G32.2 (26th) 30.1 (15th) 29.6 (18th)
S/G 31.5 (11th) 30.1 (13th) 28.5 (17th)
PP% 18.3 (12th) 17.9 (12th) 12.5 (29th)
PK% 77.5 (27th) 80.1 (24th) 78.9 (25th)

So, better in SA/G, but ranked slightly lower against the rest of the league. Worse shots per game. Terrible PP - the worst ranked PP last year was converting at 13.5%, so we're a full point worse than that (hard to believe we're still only 29th). PK is floating around the team's average.

So, not only does Noel have some undeniably strange ideas about what players to use in what situations, he also isn't really setting the league on fire with the X's and O's of coaching. And he clearly has trouble figuring out how to motivate the team. So if the choice is fire Noel but keep Jokinen, then I'm on board!
