Personally think Hitch is on the hottest seat in the NHL next year, unless the Pens crap-the-bed but don't let Bylsma go. That Blues team has a bunch of talent, brought in guys to fill holes, and still..... I know it's the defending champ 'hawks, but not-so-sure they shouldn't have lost that first round.
Don't think it matters who they put behind the bench, I just don't know if that roster has what it takes. That core group, including Oshie, Berglund, etc... have underachieved under Andy Murray, Davis Payne, and now Hitchcock. I see them very much like I saw the Sharks or Capitals over the years--ton of talent, excellent regular season team, and just don't have the horses to get it done in the post-season. Maybe the likes of Schwarz and Tarasenko will take them in a different direction, but I think they need to shake up some of the core personnel a bit.
