So, two games into the “Bobby stays” era, we have a coach who puts the first and second line out there all third period long. He changes up the lines repeatedly when the team struggles. He encourages the players instead of tearing them down. He plays Hiller. The team gets outshot 40 something to 20 something nightly. The team gives up leads. Sounds kinda like the old coach. And if you squint a little it looks kinda like the old coach.

 

So maybe practices where the players are all smiles .. maybe that’s not the answer? Maybe Winnipeg and Calgary’s cast-offs can’t get the Ducks out of the slump? Maybe this organization needs to suck it up, stop trying to turn one of the worst teams in the league into a playoff contender by “changing the feel in the room?”. Maybe the Ducks need better players?
