I know they missed the playoffs but did he do so bad a job? Were they expected to make the playoffs after drafting 1st overall?

And two seconds overall, and three eighths overall in the past six years.  What a poop show.

 

Time for JB to swoop in and clean up.  Give them a 2nd and Pouliot for Risto.

LOL. But I think SabreFan1 knew this was coming months ago. 

Yep.  It became apparent that the players weren't buying in on Housley's system after the going got rough.  The final nail in the coffin came when Eichel got suspended and the whole team got shut out 2 or 3 games in a row.  It was apparent that they were only staying in games because Eichel was pretty much basically willing the top line to do well.

After going from first in the league to a total second half collapse, something had to be done.  Last year cost some players their job, this year it cost Housley his, and soon it will be some more players.

St.Louis and Buffalo mirror images.
