Getting the wrong goalie for his system also had something to do with it. If you look back at that other post where I link to another thread (link below), Lavi talks about desiring a true number 1 to make his life easier. So the GM gets rid of Carter and Richards to improve the locker room (which it sort of did) but then get Bryz (who didn't) relegating Bob to backup when Bob was probably best suited for Lavi's system due to his athleticism. All he had to do was get more reps, build up his confidence and hone his technical game which he eventually did. Man what a clusterphuk situation....

Can Lavi, Holmgren and Snider!
