seriously we have only scored 1 goal in the last 5 periods. we have changed goalies, players, captains and goal songs. the only constant since the cup run and subsequent downslide has been the coach, the GM and this system. isn't it time for a management change if this continues any longer? I like lavi a lot. I mean A LOT. but I can only stick by someone for so long. I'm going to give him the first 20 games, if we don't at least have a 500 record I think its time to call a spade a spade and move on to a new coaching staff.
They're responsible. That's what a coach is primarily for though to make players play well and up to their abilities. Aside from that we already went through the whole Richards/Carter era blaming our centerpiece players I really don't feel like doing that again and having someone like Giroux or Voracek winning the Cup a few seasons later or Steve Mason winning a Vezina next season a la what Richards/Carter/Gagne/Stevens/Bobrovsky all have done elsewhere.
What do you suggest to do if the team is to blame? Trade the whole team? Start yet another era of dumping our biggest players because we believe they can't lead us to the promise land?
My suggestion is to not freak out like a 10 year old.
