I wanna see these players play to their potential. Perron is a badass, let him become the badass that he is.
The PP has 0 movement, piss poor passing for players in the wrong spot. They never spread out the D.
It's like having Tom Brady and being a running team.
Open it up.
Murray = no excitement.

Eh, never been a big Murray fan really.
I tolerated him when we were winning in the 2nd half last year, but his style gets old real quick if you aren't winning.
Would anyone be upset if he is fired?

There really isn't an objective argument that supports keeping him. Perhaps if the Blues want the high expectations to be realized RIGHT NOW, they need to find a coach who better fits the style of team we have RIGHT NOW.
I like our players. I don't want to see any of them leave. There's a great mix of skill sets amongst our youth. Guys who are big and skilled like Bergy, and guys who PLAY BIG and skilled like Oshie. Boyes and Backes can do so much better at their roles. EJ is quietly racking up points with his up tempo game. Yeah, maybe get Peter Laviolette's agent on the phone.

OK. How about this scenario: management keeps Murray, he looses the players completely, results do not improve, we miss playoffs and draft in the range of 10-14 where we cannot draft star player... We pick let's say another berglund or rundblad...
Or we fall miserabely because the players will not stand Murray by the end of the season. Berglund is mentally destroyed and sent to Peoria. Kariya stops producing and we cannot trade him even for a pack... We finish bad, draft in top 5, tale a forward who is supposed to come immediately to the starting line-up. All fan base get happy, 2009/2010 season starts and the newly drafted forward gets benched for several times, looses confidence, gets sent down, and we again start all this talk that we need some changes and we need some trades for Kovalchuk etc.
Let's be honest, all that happend in second half of the last season was almost a miracle. Miracles do not tend to happen twice. And the more I read Kings forums back at time when Murray was hired by Blues the more I start to believe what is written about Murray's style... and the more I start thinking that we need a new coach now.
