Ralph Krueger needs to go - like yesterday.

If RK has lost the room thats 3 coaches in a row that have lost the room.

The chances that this core leads the team anywhere with any coach at the helm if they have turned on 3 coaches is pretty damned concerning.

Huge red flags regarding the core in that room IMO.

Jack needs to be put in his place... too much of a prima dona.

He sounds like a politician.  

Some of his comments just go in circles. No wonder the players can’t play his system.  I doubt they really understand it.

Yes.  No choice he has lost the team.  Don’t fire him outright just relieve him of his coaching duties and move him elsewhere in the organization.

Where?   If he is replaced as coach what is his job?   Please don’t suggest some executive level position, all that does is create confusion (see LaFontaine era organizational issues).

It's the Pegula's....so either expect them to fire somebody when we're not expecting them to do so and don't expect them to fire somebody when we do expect them to do so.  

How my HCRK double-speak imitation?

You want to know how bad Krueger is? We are scoring 5v5 goals, at a rate that is the lowest since 2007/08 and worse than the 2nd worst which was the tank year.

2 more years guys, only 2 more years...

I feel like coaches generally either get fired early or extended

The problem is clearly more than just Ralph, but what is the key move that needs to take place that will spark the franchise, and get them out of this decade long downward spiral?

I don't have the answer. 😞

I've been harping on this all season.  The system doesn't work.  If KA and TP don't see this then they no longer deserve our support.

I'm not sure who I would blame more but I lean toward RK. The GM didn't upgrade our goalkeeper situation but frankly that area hasn't been the biggest problem. So, I vote RK off the island.  Unless the owners are eligible for such a move off the island. This seems like hopeless situation. Stand by for Eichel trade to complete the spiral.

I keep checking today to see if word has broken that Ralph is fired.

I think it could happen today.

It should happen today.

But it may well not!

Disagree.    Lack of oversight has gotten them into this mess.   

Somebody more qualified than Terry and Kim needs to preside over the GM.

Nope  An experienced competent GM is all that is required.  One that will hire an experienced competent coach.

You're almost there. And 1 that will tell the Pegulas no when they come up with another stupid player acquisition idea. 

We trade for MICHAEL FROLIC for crying out loud. How much dumber can one team get.

then who has final say over all transactions?  I agree we need Pegula's to stay away but a quality GM can run the operation.
