I feel like the Cats keep changing direction within their franchise "No, forget about THAT plan... THIS... THIS is the longterm plan".
The Bolts, since Yzerman took over, have been on a straight line. No deviation. Even after that weird injury-fueled playoff miss a couple of seasons ago, the process remained. No panic buttons pressed, no change of direction... trust the process.
I think there's a lot of truth to this statement.
I still believe one of the biggest blunders they made was firing Gallant and replacing him with an analytics 'yes man' of sorts - a guy who would do whatever the front office wanted him to do.
Gallant had those guys believing they could win. Seemed like things were clicking. I know he was well respected by the players and would often go to bat/bump heads with the front office for what he believed was best for the team.
They had poor results with the analytics-driven idea and now they're sort of trying to flip back to a more balanced approach of the old 'gut feeling' and numbers when it comes to coaching/running a team.
That's just my interpretation from different things I've read.
