All the talk of blowing up the team seems a bit much. We have a 40g scorer for 5mil a year, we have 2 other wingers who have been 20-30 goal scorers. We have a talented offensive defenseman, who can't play D for **** but if paired with the right partner with proper coaching and a good system can thrive. Its not like we don't have talent.
We need a new coach with a real system, not this "I don't match lines" and "0 for 1000 on the PP? Ok...get the same guys out there again...they are DUE!!". I swear Disco is the guy who goes to the roulette wheel and says "Red 5 times in a row?! It HAS to be black next!". We need solid goaltending and a real coach with a quality system and discipline. You don't score 3.5 goals a game in the regular season and win 75% of your games without the talent to win. Problem is, reg season coaching is not the same as the playoffs. You need quality coaching and matching and changes to adjust and counter...Disco has NEVER been able to do any of that. NEVER. N-E-V-E-R. He is a coach with an inflated regular season record from the incredible talent he has had under his command since he started, who cannot turn it into playoff success.
The Cup was won with the discipline and system of Therrien, but with Disco coming in and loosening the reins, because the players were tired of the Therrien Tirades...but Disco did not create the system that won. He just gave them some breathing room. Ever since he has been able to really direct things, we have won...what? 1 playoffs series until this year, when we SQUEAKED by an inferior Islander team, and crushed a team with 32 rookies on it? We demolished Boston in the regular season...but boy, when it REALLY counted...Disco had NOTHING to show in the playoffs. When their coaching and discipline came through in an actual series...Disco was left in the cold.
