You are rewriting the script. Tambellini was hired to improve the team. They were near the playoffs in his first first season. Cole for O<Sullivan deadline deal. Kotalik for a second.

Signed Khabibulin. Signed Quinn. Chased Heatley all Summer. Then after he put his mark on the team, they failed spectacularly and finished 30th.
