it wouldn't shock me if the entire assistant staff is gutted with McLellan being there. I could also see one of the assistants being a former head coach where if the team faulters, he is there to step in.

Thinking outside the box. I like it!

What if...and this is a bit crazy but hear me out...one of the new assistants was...wait for it...Paul Coffey! Pretty sure he was a head coach of his sons peewee team or something. But anyway who cares he's Paul Coffey!

I just wish the teams management could identify and implement some legitimately innovative solutions like this!


It's so utterly transparent when the team foists an experienced "associate coach" who's not the pick of the head coach that they're setting up an in-case-we-fire-you succession plan. If you're going to go that route, you might as well just fire him now. It's not like it's subtle, or that the head coach doesn't see it as a signal he better keep his resume up to date and it sets up a weird dynamic in the coaches room that isn't healthy for the group.

If you don't believe you have the right guy, then fire him and get it over with. If you really think he's the guy, then you let him choose his assistants. If he blames his assistants for all his failures, then he's not the right guy and you fire him, especially if he still wants to keep those assistants.




"This team needs an enema!"
