I guess people have to ways of looking at this issue. On the one hand some people believe that Claude is the best coach for this team, the players hold the lion’s share of responsibility for their lack of effort and production, and Seguin’s slow development and lack of ice time is on him and not the coach or the system. On the other hand some people; myself included, think that Claude is a big part of the problem, the players have tuned him out and the lack of effort is in large part due to the shackles his system places on them as hockey players, and that Seguin’s slow development is a result of Claude’s system and a lack of ice time.

Either way the team is playing awful hockey right now. Watching a Claude Julien coached team can be extremely frustrating but regardless of my personal feeling I hope they can turn it around. But as someone who doesn’t believe in Claude as a coach or his “system” I keep my expectations cautiously low.
