1) I'm thankful for the first few years of Lavi. Was a good time.
2) This took too damned long. Homer did better by not waiting until later this time, but it still should've been done in the offseason.
3) Berube has like 2 weeks of head coaching experience, 7 years ago on the Phantoms. On top of that, as far as I'm concerned, he is part of the problem. If he had a solution for some of the elementary issues this team has had, either he didn't share it with Lavi or Lavi was too stubborn to listen. Or, more worryingly, he had no solution.
4) It's interesting to me that Murray wasn't named, since he has a lot more experience and he wasn't part of the problem. Perhaps Berube is on an interim basis. If he's not, I have zero faith in the team going anywhere and there's a solid chance Holmgren isn't long for his tenure.
Maybe Berube will prove himself well. Or, maybe he'll be a new Pierre McGuire. The lack of HC experience is really troubling.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
