A player doesn't typically score a goal without an assist or two from his teammates. And those goals wouldn't matter much if their goaltender didn't make timely saves for the team.

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
