This board is overly hateful and doesn't reflect how things are in the real world. MT won't get fired. Bergevin and him are building this team around the players the team itself will draft. So it's aiming for 2018, not 2014.
So looking at the work MT has done with the kids so far in less than 1 full season, I don't think Bergevin would fire him. And Molson would probably be alright with it, too. The franchise is racking in tons of millions anyway.
Personally, I'd be kinda OK with it. I think it's time to have a bench boss that sticks for the long haul. Getting real tired of the revolving door. Maybe I'm old school, but I think if you want your coach to have authority, you need to keep him in place for 5-6+ yrs and not replace him at the first sign of trouble. Sends the message to players that they can't suck their way out of unpleasant situations.
