    LOL I'm an idiot. Totally distracted all afternoon. Obviously yeah, MacLean.

    The club has, in the past, brought in a previously-not-with-the-club person to work with the power play because it was sucking. It has done so again. Thus my contention that "the nature" of my question remains unchanged.

    But OK let's make it all about semantics. The MacLean thing isn't the same as the MS thing. Then it's fair to make the argument that things are worse now that a mere special advisor won't cut it, that the solution is a full-blown full-time new assistant coach.

    Thanks for helping me fill up this thread.

    I don't think it's semantics if this is the first time Larsen has been replaced as PP coach.

    But yes, we generate tons of free content to support ad space. Thankfully it's a low bar in terms of quality.

    And of course I get a cut of all ad revenue as a moderator.

    It's semantics to say that the team deeming it necessary to hire someone to work with the power play and the team deeming it necessary to hire someone to work with the power play are different.

    Just keep cherry picking those stats. Think about it, he won a cup and made a conference finals with below aveage power plays. He made the playoffs 11 times with below aveage power plays. Your arguement is weak.

    Quick poll: was I only one whose heart skipped a beat (and not in the good way) when he read the phone alert "Blue Jackets add MacLean to staff"?

    Guy ain't working for free either. If he works out something will give somewhere. The Jackets aren't going hire coach upon coach until all 25 of them get it right. Certainly getting himself back into the limelight is his priority though. Maybe there's a short term agreement. Who knows.

    Hate to say it, but I had this thought, as well.
