Morning Line- Vinnie Viola

“First of all, you have to understand one thing. I assume complete responsibility for everything that went right and went wrong since we bought the team. Obviously, we want to be a Stanley Cup contender. We’re not. How do you build trust? I think you’ve got to do it over time. To the extent that we’ve lost it, we work hard every day to get it back.”

“We rebooted in the middle of a rebuild, that’s hard to do. We lost at least part of this year to new systems, new coaches. But it seems like we are, as an organization, we are moving in the right direction.”

-Vinnie Viola, owner of the Florida Panthers.  Matthew DeFranks of the Sun Sentinel has much more on the Panthers.

Nice try.

When you fire a coach.. the way you did… whos a respected former NHLer at that..  who goes on to coach an expansion team to the finals…  only trust I’d have is that ownership/management doesn’t have a clue.
