This is a mixed bag for me. On the one hand, TMac finally got the axe he should have actually gotten before the season began, because now the new coach has to start by cleaning up the godawful mess he left behind.

Hitchcock-coached teams tend towards supporting the goalies with solid defensive systems, so it's quite possible that Talbot could get a new lease on life playing under him because he will now be hung out to dry by his defense less often than he would be under TMac's watch. Meanwhile, Koskinen could really thrive in his system, and the more solid the Oil's goaltending and defense situation becomes, the more hockey games they will win.

On the other hand, Hitch is pretty old. I get the comparisons to when Quinn was brought in, particularly since he also had to coach under a GM who was utterly clueless when it came to major player movement and asset management. However, Hitch has a much different style of coaching than Quinn did, so I am curious to see how much the Oil play as a team now that he's behind the bench.
