    There is absolutely no way any professional team in any sport can lose 10 games straight if they have good coaching. Simply cannot happen. Maurice' old school, grinding, physical, defensive minded brand of hockey simply cannot win games in this league - not that it ever did while he was coaching the Whalers. The Carolina brand of hockey - the brand that he seems to detest - is high flying, fast moving, in your face, shoot and crash the net hockey that Laviolette established - which incidentally is the brand of hockey played by every one of the conference leaders.

    So now Rutherford has decided his players are all too old to play hockey (Im assuming that Stillman would be considered geriatric if he were still on the Canes) and that it's time to bring in new blood. The problem is not with the players, it's with the coach. These players can win.
