Of the three, Murray is the only one who only "exceeded expectations". Ehrhof had an incredibly long learning curve which one could attribute to Sommer, and Gorges only blossomed when he left SJ.
I think it's pretty much universally agreed that he needs to be replaced. I really don't understand why that has not happened yet. We have a pretty good development system until the AHL where our players generally end up turning into 3rd and 4th line grinders and bottom pairing d-men. The best players we have always seem to skip the AHL, or spend little time there.

If it was universally agreed upon, he would have been replaced. I'm not sure Wisharts and Carles current status is the result of Sommer failing them. Oh actually Sommer never got a chance to develop Carle and Wishart only played five games under him. Who is this mysterious dman that Sommer has/had failed?
