Because they had nobody better!

by Redwic


After the team dumped Mucha, Carruth became "the man".

And because the Winterhawks had such a high-powered offense and an increasingly better-over-time defense, they thought that Carruth would be able to do enough.

Basically, they tried to mimic what Vancouver did for several seasons. The problem: The Vancouver Giants had (and still ahve) Don Hay as coach and a MUCH better defense during their multi-year reign than Portland has had.
