Considereing we as a fanbase have done nothing but complain about the lack of team defense for the past two years, I wouldn't be against a defensive minded coach as long as it's not Murray.
probably not. but that is why this season a good portion of the blame can be placed on Holmgren. his "balls of steel" attitude as some like some like to use around here caused him to miss out on some guys who could of helped out. Once Holmgren struck out on Parise,Suter and Weber the options were pretty thin. Then Jagr and Carle left as well.
We do ***** about the defense and rightly so but going to a completely defensive system is the wrong way to go. As Beef said find a guy "in the middle"
