Bruce must go - getting it on the table early...

First, the headline is somewhat tongue-in-cheek.  Second, it's not going to happen.  Bruce lead the renaissance in DC, and he's going to get a shot at the playoffs this year.  But...

Hear me out here.  Remember when Lou Lamoriello (sp?) fired Ftorek with less than 10 games in the season?  The team was obviously talented, the playoffs were a cinch, but the team had entered a slump and showed no signs of breaking out of it.  The ploy worked, if I recall, and the Devs went on to win the Cup that year.

If Ted is serious about winning a cup, he'll pull the trigger.  The team has just stopped trying, stopped caring about winning.  Can they turn it on once the playoffs come around?  Well, that's the million dollar question, but I am skeptical.  They have flat been going through the motions against the Florida/Carolina/Toronto types that they ought to dominate.
