Of the three we've been hearing about, he seems the lesser of the evils.

I don't think that gives Lavi enough credit. He's an experienced coach. He's won a Cup, had a few other Cup appearances. For a team that has had a bit of a history of going with inexperienced coaches, only to try an experienced coach and win its first Cup, and then go back to newbies, this is a welcome return to experience. I'm happy with this hiring. Perhaps some could argue Gallant is better, but Gallant also has flaws. Both are better than Babcock. And way better than any unproven coach. We don't have time to allow a newbie to learn the ropes.

Yeah we should have just hired an experienced coach immediately after Trotz. Reirden looks like a clueless dildo.
