They would be bad with a real Nhl coach, and they'd continue to be outshot, but not by these ridiculous margins.

This team(well, at least parts of it)doesn't.

We want tanking with player development though. If the current young players don't improve (even if the results are still losses), then tanking achieves nothing.

And that's the issue with Rolston. There is no reason to believe he can help develop the young players on the team right now.

If the scoreboard could isolate Stafford, Leino and Rolston and fall on them that'd be greeeeaaaat.

Bandwagon fans will return when the team is good.

The bridges that go across the rink would also suffice.

True. They're near the bottom of the West, but at least they're trying. Think about what might have been...putting Monahan in this lineup and turning him loose...oh, who am I kidding? He'd be lucky to get 4th line minutes.

Agreed. But you may lose some longtime fans, too. They can only take so much.

Girgs goes to front of net.... Grigs stays out in the slot.

Blame Rolston.

I'm not really worried about the fan base. I'm worried about properly developing the youngsters.

Rolston is hot garbage

Yep.

I don't want Pegula et al. making decisions based on what the fans want.

I want them making decisions based on what will help make this team a Cup contender.

Keeping Rolston does not aid in reaching that goal either in the short-term or the long-term. Every game he coaches is a game of wasted development for Grigs, Girgs, Larsson, etc.

I swear sometimes Grigs and Girgs is like a living Goofus and Gallant.

Goofus tries to dangle
Gallant drives to the net.
