It's Not Always Fun Being Right

Ron Wilson "relieved of his duties" as coach of the San Jose Sharks... not a fun thing to have happen, but me thinks a necessary one. A lot has been written both here and elsewhere about Wilson's job performance, but he being let go is sad in that it speaks to the unfulfilled expectations to date rather than a clear signal of a great leap forward.

That great leap may well come under the helm of whoever takes over, but in the end it came down to a simple equation... what was being done wasn't working so you gotta change something. Time will tell whether the something to changed turns out to be the right course.

Maybe if the Sharks wanted to win the cup, they would spend more money. There are only 4 clubs with lower payrolls than the Sharks!
