Overall a net negative.
Really? I think our transition game looks a lot better, relatively. Though you did say not a profound difference. I wouldn't call it a net negative just yet, the season isn't near over, and things have been improving.

Personally, I think an NHL coach deserves at least full season before people tie a noose (not you). We've also just acquired Klein, so I'm curious to see how the defense plays out the rest of the season.
