There is no perfect roster. There is no perfect coach. Our coach and our roster were no longer working well together. It's far easier to change the coach than to change all the players. That doesn't mean there won't be roster changes, but Torts' act had gotten old. It was time for a change. There's really nothing more to it than that.
So, is Carlyle a good coach?
There are perfect rosters. Islanders and Edmonton and Montreal have all had perfect rosters at one time.
When was our coach and roster working well together? Is your point that the players didn't like the coach? Who cares. America won its most famous Olympic gold medal under a coach they despised.
I have no problem with changing the coach. I just don't think it will help or hurt.
