Outside of getting DW loaded with booze & truth serum, we'll never know for sure.
I don't think this is DW's decision. I think this comes from the business side of the house John Tortora.

Between this and the rebuild the Sharks should be fun to watch next year. Oh, did I say fun? I meant depressing thinking of what should have been.

If DW doesn't do a hell of a rebuild, or just realizes he was a couple Dmen away from having the best NHL team so addressing that would help the Sharks, I'm officially off of his bandwagon.

Yup. Has nothing to do with DW.

Other stuff that drove me nuts was his constant talking over Randy's PBP, especially for things we can see. "Watch out here!" Yes drew we can see its a breakaway, dont need you to point it out. When he wrestles with the crew, "Stop it here guys...Stop it here!..."STOP IT HERE GUYS!!!!...Ok this is Joe Thornton, now role it". He'll also complain about things only because they didnt work, not because they were the wrong play *Dman shoots with no one infront* "Where is everyone, why shoot when the goalie is just gonna stop it? Best to cycle it low or something" *Dman doesnt shoot and its a turnover* "You just gotta put it on net. Maybe you get a rebound or a whistle"

I felt bad for people who didnt know a lot of hockey and thought what he said was always correct

Sad news, he and Randy were the best duo. It's going to be very weird not having him there anymore.

Drew wasn't great, but Randy isn't great either. Every other game Randy will say it's a penalty on one team, but it turns out it was on the other team, or just a high touch. Pay attention to it, happens all the time, multiple times in a game. He gets other things wrong too. Not as often as the penalty on the team issue, but probably once a week during the season he spits out some misinformation. Mostly trivial stuff, but still.

He's better than in the mid 00's when he'd say "Hooked, no call. Tripped, no call" ad nauseum but still, he's not perfect.

What was great was the combination of Randy and Drew. They have insane chemistry. With Drew gone, they should get a new PBP too, because Randy's flaws will be highlighted even more when he's not partnered with someone he has chemistry with.

I'll miss Drew, for sure. I made this back when he first left (someone else's idea, though).

Randy hasnt been as good since they moved them upstairs. I think vision or distance to the game might be more of an issue for him than anything

Another thing, I don't think the whole he was fired because he was overly critical thing has any truth to it. Drew has only held the players accountable, which is what the organization is trying to do. He has never, not once, criticized the management or coaching. He would defend them to the grave. He preached exactly what the Sharks organization wants us to think, couldn't have done a better job at that.

Drew is awesome. If the reasons he is giving are why he was actually fired there's a severe disconnect between them and the fans.

I'm glad Drew is gone. Real bad and worsening over the last couple years, IMO.

Baker please. Also wouldn't mind someone outta left field like Owen Nolan, he'd never do it but I'd like it to be a former Shark. Which former Sharks would be good?

Can't tell if serious...

Would be hilariously hard to watch if Fatto was the color commentator during a rebuild. Guy is pure pile even when they play at their best.

Anyways, if you don't want to listen. Drew's take on the "refresh" is upgrade the Defense and get a new no.1 goalie. Doesn't think Stalock is that guy nor is Niemi.

Drew is such a simplistic thinker. How the heck do we upgrade the D? Magically find that left dman in the KHL?

By using our magic cap space and prospects to get players via FA or trade.
