Only thing I would have done differently is fired him halfway through last season. It's been painfully obvious that his system hasn't worked in how long now? Teams have figured out how to counter this teams one and only method of play. As opposed to coaches like julien, quenville, tippet, etc. who employ a very adaptive system, Laviolette utilizes one system at all times and when teams figure it out, he's completely unable/unwilling to adapt. He had lost this locker room and player didn't believe in his system anymore. That was obvious to me when vinny became the only player playing with any enthusiasm: he's new and hasn't realized lavis complete incompetence yet. This team needs a savvy hockey coach who can sculpt a system to our strengths instead of forcing in a system that is so obviously catered towards a team built opposite to ours. I'm not sure that berube is the answer, but perhaps he'll have an interim tag until they can find a more suitable candidate.
