In that MacTavish got cut loose. It was believed that he might resign but he either did not get the chance or decided that he was not going to.
I am inclined to believe that it was the latter and that that was his statement on the team that he was given. And perhaps the teams that he was given over the past three seasons.
I've said it a hundred times. I think MacTavish is a good coach. I also think he did a poor job this year. The team was flawed but there was enough there that they should have made the playoffs.
I think that its fair to say that this is Tambellini's team now. It will be interesting to see what else transpires in the next few months and who they have in mind for a successor. I would guess Crawford is near the top of the list. Bleah.
We will likely see MacTavish on television next season and then back behind another bench the following season.
Good luck to him.
