I think BB was given an opportunity to continue on from last year. That hope probably faded when Demko went down.

Maybe Bo was given the same ultimatum.

I think once Bo is gone, the last of the Country Club atmosphere will be gone, and the new direction will finally be looked at. 

Those who were hired have experience winning championships, looking forward to the changes as it has been a long time coming.

Coaching bump paired with the easiest schedule over the last part of the season. This management needs to start making moves asap or this team is going to finish in 12 place and draft 13th...

In some ways, I don't mind that.  Drafting high is great, but the trend of huge, long term contracts on their second deals makes building a winner through the draft almost impossible

For the record,  before people get too excited:

 

Foote has zero professional coaching experience and only ever coached 1 'meh' season in the WHL when his son was on the team.

 

Gonchar only has coaching experience with one other NHL team, of which he was a former player.

 

Tocchet has a career losing record as an NHL coach.

That’s perfect for team tank! (^^)

None of them have experience winning championships at the coaching level.

What's the broadcast quality like?

Obviously not nhl quality, but it's still good and they have most of the angles covered and all the replays etc.  The only thing that bugs me is every once in awhile they'll cutaway to a "player card" screen in the middle of the play.
