Bruh, we had Tim Army and Dave Farrish for multiple seasons. There is no possible way we could do worse.

Speaks volumes when we know absolutely nothing about the hire and we are planning a parade. Nothing can be as bad as it's been.

So, I'm not going to sit here and pretend as if I know what this guy did. I won't call these great hires. I will just say thanks for the change. Let's see what happens.

Bruh..we re-hired Tony Granato as a HC after demoting him for failing to be able to show the leadership skills necessary for leading an NHL All-Star team to fight its way out of a wet paper bag.

The AVs then hired three straight HC's without one day of NHL experience between them.

Don't ever jinx this club saying they can't do worse. Since 2003, it's been a **** show and until they make the playoffs three years in a row, any bit of improvement should be viewed skeptically and considered an anomaly.

Sacco's hire was God awful to begin with. No one can defend that atrocious hire.
Roy and Bednar hires made sense, they had impressive resumes with championship wins in their respective divisions and a track record of success.

We can't do any worse than the sheer ineptitude of Army and Farrish. It's not even close to possible.

You're just asking for a "hold my beer" moment from them, aren't you?

I just simply refuse to believe our coaching staff can be any dumber and more useless than Army and Farrish.
I will have to see it for me to believe it.

You obviously weren't a Nuggets fan in the 90s.

Yeah, trust me, if ANYTHING taught me that it can always be worse, it was the 90s-era Nuggets. There was no bottom.

It seems like "it can't get any worse than this" has been a thing for this team for about a decade now.
