Then we have Green as a coach which is fucking up this team and the players, you want to talk about bad habits watch how this team plays.

Brining in a temp coach which works on the simple parts of the game and has the players playing both ends of the ice will do more good than letting Green and his wrecking crew stay.
Back to your original comment because it was from the heart. Doesn't sound like anything is going to happen this year now. However;
How about demoting Newell Brown to some other office job and bringing in a fresh face with some new outlooks. Example; Alex Burrows in Montreal.
That pissed me off. He woulda been great here.

Were you not one of the people who was lobbying to get a veteran coach here?

Yup, and I still think so. It's been made clear that will not be happening this year. But a new voice from a different assistant could be positive.
"Green" is consulting with "Brown" all the time during games. Couldn't hurt have a different voice at practices as well. It's difficult not thinking we should be getting a wee bit more out of the roster we have.
