Right here is why I think it’s time to move on from Evanson. Has he ever taken responsibility with the dismal special teams?

Maybe he should sit down with Mike Yeo in the off season and go back and watch the video on that to find the solution.

I'm not ready to pull the plug on Evason. I like many of his ways for the team and a few drive me nuts.
He got the players to function as a team for once and had many (if not all) going that extra effort most of the season.
Made the D way more aggressive in the O-Zone, Huge change from previous teams.
Make some coaching changes (PP for sure) and see how it goes.
Isn't that why you have all these specialty coaches? To make those decisions...Sure Evason should've been more assertive towards his staff as I'd have to think he knew the PP was a problem that wasn't going to fix itself by doing the same thing over and over.

Like I said if he’s gone tonight won’t blink. The special teams was the teams demise and he did nothing about it. And that’s probably the number one reason they are getting tee times in my book along with the defense

For the last 3 years we always had consistent problems in scoring and winning in our Division against Colorado, St.Louis and Nashville teams. It seems these teams are our barrier which we are not capable to pass including playoffs time too.

I fully understand yours and JTG's viewpoint on all this. :)
I just can't include the previous 2 years as a measuring stick for reasons stated...(and more)
Having somewhat a 'normal' season we obviously didn't have trouble scoring like previous years. *See records broken ;) 
I think Evason in the fact knows the Iowa boys, He should get the chance to coach them in the bigs. Better than bringing in a retread old vet coach who has no experience with them and says "Play MY way or else".
If guys like Trotz are so good, Then why are they always available every couple years. ;)

While we went to GM 7 vs VGK last year, The common denominator was 1 thing ...Fleury. 
We got to GM 7 because of him and only game 6 for the same reason. We had his # last couple years and he's waaaay past prime and even a year older with us.
I love the guy as a person and as a solid veteran player but he wasn't going to be the magic that we needed for a long run.
Did Evason make this decision to roll with him? I'm not so sure...I think BG said, This is why we got him...Play him !!

Being the sour taste is still in the mouths of all of us, I'm not into knee-jerk reactions right now. There's so much to be decided in these few months and I'll be very curious to see what happens.

I think we need to look for more talent capable to score in extremely difficult time , including the 4th line. Our line #4 was not productive even when we had a high scoring chances . 

Interesting, 🙂, I would blame our loss in game 5 (home ice) on our 100.3FM radio commentators. By the end of 2nd period we had a score 2:2 and they said that Tarasenko is invisible for these playoffs series because he wanted to be traded to other club. Then as soon as they said that, he placed a hat trick during a 3rd period. And we lost this game 2:5. Our entire team was not able to do anything to change the score. In game 6 I even did not recognize our team. It was completely changed. The loss in game 5 affected them badly?

For some reason Evanson just kind of rubs me the wrong way. Not sure what the heck it is but I’m just not a big fan. Great post CC by the way. Lot of good points and yes from me it’s probably a knee jerk reaction but I’m sticking with it

I think Fleury could be a good goalie coach for our team when he retire. I was expecting him a lot as a solid goalie for the Chicago team, but his results were not too good there.

I was expecting much more from our entire team this season in comparison to the previous seasons. But sadly, that not happened. At least Kaprizov stepped up this playoffs in comparison to the last year. The rest of the team not much.We need more talent insertion capable to score when it matters most. Fiala's talent was very good during the regular season , but was invisible during playoffs.

Evason's almost constant look of a deer in headlights cracks me up.  Makes me wonder if it does the same to some players when he's trying to coach them.
