I strongly disagree with this. This team has overachieved the past two years. No way will they fire him. This season, we had one bonafide superstar, one top level defensemen, one do-it-all-guy, one possible superstar, one goalie on social security, one unproven goalie and the rest interchangeable parts. With this group, they were in the running until the last week to be the top team in the west.Aside from the goalie debate, I do think Evason is coaching for his job this series. 3+ seasons is an eternity by NHL standards. I would guess very few get a 5th chance without making it out of Round 1.
The series is 1-1. Let's all settle down. If the games were reversed, we would all be pretty pleased right now.
By the way, I agree that Gustavsson probably should have started game 2. But it also wouldn't have surprised me if Fleury had shut them down.
