Brooks loses points with me for actually using the term "buckets of fail" in his article today.

Poor Brooksie.

He wants to be a part of the story so badly.

I've never been a huge fan, but this season has just made me dislike him that much more.

You can't build around a coach in today's NHL where coaching changes are so, so common. On the other hand, you can't build around the core of players you have when the core of players you have isn't good enough to be built around.

What this team needs is to modify the core of players. We have part of the core, but we're still missing 2-3 major pieces that a core of a good team needs to be made of.

Also, in response to this Renney-Jagr nonsense, the only way Renney helped Jagr to "overachieve" is that he simply let Jagr do whatever he wanted, most of the time (and this is coming from a Renney defender). The increase in scoring in 05-06 is the biggest reason Jagr had such a great season.
Perhaps I shouldn't have been so cryptic, I agree with you 100%. You can't build around a coach. It's a lot easier to change one coach than 23 players. And yes, there needs to be changes and additions to the core but you can't fire the team. I believe good coaches adapt their systems to the available talent, not the other way around. And based on what I see during games and in overall asset management, I don't see that happenbing in New York.

Most dictators turn things into a pile of crap and then tell you how good a job they are doing.

I agree 100% with Drury.
There seems to be a complete lack of hockey sense.
Mindless breakdowns.
No continuity.

Is it the players, the coach, the system, the coaching philosophy of developing players?

Something is really wrong.

Hmmmm I would call what I saw fail.

Powerplay Fail
Skating hard fail
Forecheck fail
Scoring fail
Passing fail
Rookie fail

Lots of fail to pick from.

I'm the other way around. I never liked him before but this year he earned my respect. 20 reporters and he's the only one with a set to stand up to that hot head after a game. Actually question his dodges. Isn't this what you want in the guy covering your team? If he's been brought into the story that is the fault of the coach who did it in front of the camera and other reporters, a couple of times already.
