Well, if for some reason the organization has been waiting to fire Yeo, now is the time with Ruff available, because I don't think he stays jobless for very long.

If Oates is fired that entire franchise needs to be bleached twice.

They need to trade Ovechkin.

Not gonna lie, I would love to have Ruff come coach here if Yeo is fired. Speaking of available coaches though, how come no one ever picked up MacTavish after his time in Edmonton?

Personally I loved that Minnesota never picked mactavish. Want nothing to do with him.

MacT was runner up I believe.

My thoughts at the time:

Quote:
I went MacT. I wouldn't mind Hitch but I don't think he'd jive with the "youth movement" idea. That HW writeup of his time in CBJ scared me away. Don't want him scaring Granlund back to Europe. Therrien, same thing. Yeo I think is still a little green.

Yeo is about as green as Richards was. Meanwhile, MacT has nine seasons as NHL head coach and Hitchcock has about fifteen.

I don't want to hire a coach because someone else can get him in a couple years. [Yeo] had a good year, but I don't think that means he will be lights out as an NHL head coach. Hire the best guy for the job for next year and beyond.

He's a hot name right now but nobody knows how he'd coach in the NHL. Richards was the same way. John MacLean was the same way. We can't have another head coach come into this club and learn on the job unless Fletcher is confident that he is the best man to make this team the most successful.

The Russo blog where he describes Yeo's system as aggressive forechecking that results in high shots for and few shots against doesn't make sense. Isn't that the same thing Richards wanted to implement? The only way you can limit the offense through an aggressive forecheck is with speedy players that can create turnovers and skilled puck cyclers that can maintain possession in the offensive zone. Isn't that the same coaching style as Richards that didn't work with this roster? Is he just a nicer guy or better bench manager?

Thought about Yeo:

Has he tried to change anyone's game at all? Or asked them to play a different style?

I just dont see any of that. It does not seem like he is challenging the players much at all. I'm starting to think our hot streak last year was a complete fluke and Yeo's "system" is bunk, or completely unsuited to our roster.

I guess he's tried to make Granlund more of a grinder, but I don't recall him telling Koivu to shoot more or Clutter to pick his shots better or things like that.

I'm not entirely sure that's unfair, either...Granlund was really struggling to play against physical players (i.e., the entire league). I don't think the hope was to make him a checking forward, but to teach him how to make some space for himself so that the flashy stuff works more.

It has baffled me how people who watched those games could think otherwise. Every win was watching Homer box.

I wanna see a bag skate and I wanna see one now. They've got 2 days off, and frankly I don't really know how else Yeo can try and get this pathetic team to start putting in effort instead of playing like tepid pisswater against a ****** ****ing Calgary team.

Jesus.

Yeo is canned if they don't win convincingly on Tuesday.

I thought he did have shooting practice.

I'm all for a complete blow up of the roster at the end of this season.

Well, I guess i'm gonna join the fire Yeo bandwagon. I hate to say it, but, something has to give. No excuses this year. Yeo just looks outmatched on the bench, and not to mention the powerless play. I have yet to see Yeo light in to a player or a ref yet, and I really want to see some more fire from this guy, he keeps demanding it from the players so I think he needs to step his game up as well.

It's too bad, I really wanted him to succeed. But, I think it's time for a change soon.

This team resembles anaheim last year. They seemed like they didn't want to play for Carlyle. This team doesn't look like it wants to play for Yeo.
