Yes, they did.

It's just such a poorly constructed organization right now. Leonsis has allowed McPhee the opportunity to hire 5 coaches despite only 3 playoff series wins during a tenure that included 3 Division titles and a President's Trophy. McPhee was content to hope the young players matured together, he's refused to hire a HC with NHL experience, his FA signings are bargin basement and the ones he spends money on suck, and he can't draft for **** outside the 1st round.

I would honestly love to see them gut the team at the deadline except for a few players (Ovy, Backstrom, Alzner, and Carlson), fire GMGM, and hire someone like Burke to start over. McPhee isn't going to take them anywhere.
