What does everyone think? The team just looks like it's quitting. If he can't fire up the troops to play hard tomorrow night, maybe it's time to cut bait.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

It's how they're losing that makes the difference. We're starting to be one of those teams that others look forward to playing, and not because it's a challenge.

Is this poll about us thinking LOU will fire JMac if we lose badly to the Rangers or about US wanting Lou to fire JMac?

I voted no, because I doubt the gets the axe so quickly (and he shouldn't). It's still a bit early, although he should definitely feel Lou's breath on his neck and if things don't improve very quickly, there will be changes. With a team stocked like this and in a "win now" mode, I don't think it was a smart idea to hire a rookie coach.

I think it's because he's a rookie coach that he won't get any slack for this awful a start, especially given money spent this offseason.

If this team is still losing come middle of November I think he gets canned. I voted yes though cause I was not feeling the Johnny Mac coach hiring. Most of this team has already heard what Mac has to say as an assistant.

No. Start firing the veteran players that have gone through 20 coaches in the last few years.

He's coaching a team that's half rookies and half bad contracts.
No.

Stop...he's got a roster that should be top in the conference. Hopefully either mac is gone ina a week or a major shakeup happens. For all the bs that lou spits year after year about nothing mattering other than a cup...well his team is certainly showing its worth.

It's not too early to fire any coach...so that argument is out the window.

The question is, should he be fired and that's debatable.

No doubt Jmac takes some blame. He has some talent for sure. But no Volchenkov, no Salvador and no cap room means some blueliners that should be in the minors. And Elias, Rolston, Zubrus(although I like his style of play) and others have been playing below there cap hit before Maclean showed up...

Hopefully they can pull out of it but maybe a shekeup is needed.

Elias and Rolston are now playing above their cap hit?
Short of blind passes to no one or a falling Clarkson Elias has been invisible....
Rolston is tougher to tell as he's hurt.

No they are still playing below it. They are playing terrible. I'm just saying you can't blame Maclean for those guys sucking, because they haven't been right for a while.
Yes unfair to blame Rolston. He actually looked like he was coming around before the injury.
