Doesn't matter if someone is better. That's not why teams make coaching changes.
The Ducks fired Babcock and won the Cup a few years later. Does that mean he was a bad coach? No. But sometimes you have to make a change to freshen things up. This team needs some kind of a change in its philosophy. It won't just come with getting rid of old players (they're all scratched anyway) and calling up more kids from GR. Something more is needed in the attitude of the organization. The complacency and lack of accountability is not a good thing.
The Ducks didn't fire Babcock - he declined their offer to renew his contract to come here.
