KK was fired because of how terrible he was, literally one of the worst coached and ran AHL franchises in history. I'm not sure what you're even trying to argue here? San Jose saw him when they had Meier in RN on a line with Perron, it's no surprise they asked for him, and now have put him in a position to succeed in the AHL, which he's doing. You didn't see Batherson start off on the 4th line this year and get healthy scratched in favor of nobodies. He was put in a position to succeed, which he is doing. He never moved Perron for Balcers, Perron was a throw in with Karlsson. If it was a trade for Balcers, sure that would be a win, but that's not even close to what it was.
