Which is the case for every HC that takes over a below 500 team. I've never understood why you guys have hyped that excuse up so heavily for Smithiak the first 3 to 4 years. You are right that it's an accurate assessment, but it isn't anything that tons of other coaches haven't had to walk into when they're the new hire just like Kubiak was.
