At some point, Ron WIlson had to be fired. I can't blame him entirely since the goaltending was inconsistent all season long and the whole team does not have that much quality depth. Nonetheless, he could not get the effort from these guys. It should be a grinding, hard working team and it looked so lethargic and phlegmatic to the point where if the players were not traded, the change had to happen behind the bench. I was not sure about the timing of this firing, though, because i could not think of a good coaching candidate to take over. I completely forgot about the man who won the Cup, Carlyle. The guy is tough, but slick hockey sense and knowledge. I don't think he will make a big difference down the final stretch, but he is put in place to get to know the team better and to participate in the evaluation of this team in the off-season by addressing what he needs to Burke. Good hiring, but changes must be made this off-season...........of course if the CBA is done.
