Hey Stan, fire Kitch & hire Hitch!

I think it would be a pretty bold move if Hitch was willing to be the assistant.


Yeah, yeah, "politics" of it bla bla bla...

They just had to keep Yeooor in the division, let's go with the 1-2 punch.

Barry Smith would be better than Hitch but why not replace both assistant coaches.

Why on earth would anyone want Hitch in any capacity as coach? Our offense is struggling enough without a coach actively killing offensive strategy of team

Hitch will be drowning his sorrows at Golden Corral for the next month, we don't want him. Agree a shake up in the assistants iis a great idea but it won't happen

Grass is always greener on the other side, I guess.

Of course, as usual the real problem coach gets off the hook.

This will be his last year behind the bench. Put it in the bank.

From the reports Hitch seemingly has already made his decision to hang 'em up but I was referring to Q. Promote himself for the good of the team.

IMO, Hitch is far from an offense killer. He's overachieved with all his rosters of the past and St. Louis hasn't been very gifted beyond Tarasenko so he rolls with what he has. Coaching 101.

Bottom line, he gets his teams to work incredibly hard on the ice. So much so that they seem to run a little low on energy once the playoffs hit. It'd be a perfect time to shake things up with him running the fine print.

This team has major awareness issues when it comes to transition & offensive schemes. I haven't seen that in STL at all the past few years. Once again, they overachieve in these departments and that's been a big part of their success.

We have a pretty good roster as is even though we don't have 2nd liners on the 3rd line, it's time for the roster to play beyond their basic talent level and this is the perfect time of year to start gearing up.

Same. Don't think I'd waste a dollar at 1000/1 on Q not being the head coach in October.

Only way Q isn't behind the bench next season is if he chooses not to be (I've never heard this to be the case?). Silly to think he's on any kind of a hot seat right now.

Q is 58. People here talk like he's 70.

I'm sure he just can't wait to say "yeah, I'm done".

Q's odds of leaving after this year (or getting fired) are about the same as me being the next Blackhawks head coach.

So, 3%, tops.

Q isn't going anywhere regardless to how the season ends.


But, the Hawks aren't going deep without either a system & consistency adjustment or an injection of talent. We just don't have the forward depth to outscore the opponent while playing a patient defense first game. Q's approach relies on icing top end talent, but we're getting to the point where we're not head & shoulders above the competition.
