Not A Good Idea

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Ken Campbell of the Hockey News,

The Tampa Bay Lightning has hired Barry Melrose as head coach; brace yourself, this could really get ugly.

And considering it’s the Lightning we’re talking about here, that’s saying something.

Apparently new owners Oren Koules and Len Barrie felt it was a good idea to replace a Stanley Cup winning coach with a guy who not only hasn’t coached a game in the NHL for 13 years, but was one who had a mediocre .449 winning percentage in just three seasons of NHL experience in the first place.

Stoll’s Uncertain Future

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Robert Tychkowski in the Edmonton Sun, these words from Edmonton Oiler, Jarret Stoll:

“It would be nice to know for sure, one way or another, what’s going to happen,” said the 26-year-old centre, who made it through the draft without being dealt but knows there’s still a long way to go between now and when the Oilers open camp in September.

“You hope a team wants you. If it’s Edmonton, that’s great, that’s what I want. But if it’s not, then you move on.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen and that’s kind of the thing that, if anything, bothers me. Not knowing. It can be a little nerve-racking.”
