you know i realize those two points but if you also recall this team also has had better players and leaders in those two teams and from what i am seeing there are no leaders on this team. There is no defense, goal tending is marginal at best, the lack of discipline in the taking of penalties especially when you know that you are not that good and cant afford to put your team in a hole. Also I dont see a power play that is very good either. Now do i think that red should leave maybe i mean i understand that he wants to fix the problem but maybe he should figure out if he is saying the coaching could be better then thats on him and he better do something about it. Maybe get better assistants or maybe he needs to look at how he is coaching. What ever is the problem is they need to fix it so they can go into next season with some momentum.
Now as far as fixing it they need better defense men , better goal tending, and maybe more of a blue collar mentality, that is my thoughts for now. I also understand that he has lost some good players to the ahl and the NHL that hurts too. But it needs to be fixed some how.
