The fact that Murray is still head coach of this team defies all logic.

Lightning won't strike twice. Last year was an anomaly, and that's not the kind of team this is anyway. They should have 20-30 more goals than they presently have and 5-6 more wins.

Defies all logic?? Really??? Who won last night?? Who is turning this team around lately? SO when they lose, it's because of Murray, and when they win, it's despite him? By that logic, it could be argued that the Detroit Red Wings won all those cups despite Scotty Bowman........

And actually, lightning strikes in the same place aren't unheard of, if conditions are right -- such as radio towers, buildings, etc.

I'm just sayin'....

I'm not sure you can credit Murray for a spin around goal from basically where the blue line used to be with 18 different kinds of traffic in front of Nabokov. By that point it's just down to hockies players playing hockies. What concerns me more is how we never - except for the Vancouver game, really - play the way we're capable until we've spotted the other team a goal or two. Doesn't that tell you that the team is being told to play with their assholes a little too tight?

That Goddamn Pronger is a coach killer.
BTW, while on the subject, Pronger gives a large part of the credit for his development at the NHL level to Andy Murray X 1000. The great Coach K.

Well I'm not sure you can blame Murray for that fact that our goal scorers couldn't score a goal into the Gateway Arch from 20 feet, either, so I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.....

I'm not entirely sure what Murray has done in his NHL coaching career to warrant such high praise as an elite coach, etc... apart from develop a system that works on a team that's filled with grinders and never advance particularly far in the playoffs. Last years team was a grinding team out of necessity. This years team isn't designed as such.

To effectively proclaim that Murray is doing a fantastic job because of a win which wouldn't have happened save for a last seconds shorty is shortsighted. No matter how crap the coach, a team will win games, and may even make the playoffs. What happens if they get there is another story altogether.

Laviolette has cup experience and now he's gone. I'm tired of this team being a bridesmaid.

my washing machine is on constantly.
again, I was doing fine lastnight, and when I woke up. but when I looked at yahoosports and it said nothing about Murray being fired I wanted to cut someone.
If this team had average or shit goalies they would be the worst in the league.
