"This team was a playoff team the year before last . . . and we've added to it. Some of the players had down years last year. Were those down years because of injuries? Was it all that or because of coaching? Obviously, Hexy must have thought the coaching had something to do with it or he wouldn't have changed it. I think we have every reason to believe in the decisions Hextall has made."
