SimonSin is the master of doom n gloom, I still have much to learn of his ways.
No, I'm really not. I think it's alarming how happy people are that the best coach in the game jumped ship and is being replaced by an inexperienced question mark.
It'd be like if Datsyuk left for Russia tomorrow, and we decided to replace him in the lineup next season with Mantha. Giving Mantha matching playing time, on the top line, etc, etc. Sure Mantha could be really good in that spot next season, but he could also be really bad, or maybe just mediocre. At the end of the day it's probably just be better to hold onto Datsyuk.
Let's face it, we got stuck with plan B.
Plan A > Plan B
I think there is no harm in being excited. It's something new. Sure there is a small chance it can be really bad. But in the end, even if Babs stayed, he wasn't gonna coach forever. The team is about as best suited to replace a coach as a team can possibly be.
I agree that keeping Babs would have been the best option. But he is gone. I'm not gonna dwell on it. Just gonna be excited to see what Blash can do. He may be option B, but he is a damn fine option B.
