When should Mo go?


So back when Peter Laviolette was mired in the "he's lost the team" slump here in Raleigh, people were clamoring for change. And change came in the form of retread Paul Maurice. The team responded to the change, and fought their way all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals, quite a ride. Next season, that same exact team TANKED in a big bad way, for a number of reasons. The veterans were sent packing, hungry youth were brought up, other teams started playing their backup goaltenders and taking nights off, and we won a handful of games to finish strong.

Let's say for the sake of argument that this year's team -- laden with unproven, untested youth -- flops out of the gate. How badly do we have to do before realistic calls for a coaching change need to start hitting the mainstream airwaves? How short a leash does Mo get with these youngsters? Do we cut him any more slack than previous years?
