I actually think Laviolette is a great coach. Am I an expert? No. I’ve only seen his record and a couple 24/7 documentaries. I personally think good teams become stagnant if they fail to win year after year. Yeah, the Predators have a good team but in terms of the squad it seems to be the same old same old. Sometimes teams need to mix it up a bit and instead of making a significant change in the roster, the Preds dropped the coach- which is easier and in the past has shown results. Laviolette will be back in the league but until then, never forget about the Jam.
