Cam Ward has been bad since 2012/2013 season so not sure that is a coaching issue but you do make a good point. They weren't exactly great this year in net.

He’s only been with them for a year. He was most sought after when he left Pittsburgh last year.

First, good to know. 

Second, oh look... another Pittsburgh guy.

Ah, a Botterill disciple, not responsible for Scott Darling. Matt Murray certainly developed well, if that was his handiwork.

Carolina also had respectable goaltending this year. Mrazek posted a .914 in 40 starts and McElhinney had a .912 in 33. If our goaltenders had posted those numbers we'd probably have improved our goal differential by 30 (note: I didn't actually do the math).

Carolina also has a much better style of play and blue line than we did/do

We take everything from their football team, might as well take from the hockey team too.

Yea, but they have had better play for years and haven't had better goaltending.

I ran the numbers as if it was a save percentage of .913 for both guys and it was an 8 goal difference for Hutton and a 9 goal difference for Ullmark for a total of 17.

Hajt worked with the defense right? What did Payne and Allen do?

Don’t know anything about this guy but if he was saught after and he drops another franchise after one season to jump ship this is a good sign.  RK is reported to still be well connected within the league despite his time away.  Seems like a dude that would make a good impression on people and maybe good quality coaches could be lured to join RK over here.

Allen was the goalie coach and he definitely needed to be fired.

Smith ran the defence last year. Hajt did the previous year and I was never clear what his duties were last year after Smith came in. Payne ran the forwards and I believe the PP. He was also the number 2 guy - I think he may have had the associate coach title.

Ward is the guy who came to us after running the legendary Shattuck prep school program for years. I’m not sure what his technical duties were, but I always pigeonholed him in the mentoring young men role.

Looks like Ralph just needs a technician to replace Payne.

Yes, Carolina’s goaltending was greatly improved this past season and was a big reason that they were able to break through.
