First Coach Fired…

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

Look, I love The Hockey News and not just because I tend to agree with their thinking and they tend to agree (within reason) with my preseason picks.

But if there’s one area we tend to differ regarding the upcoming season, it’s who will be the first coach fired.

The consensus in the latest edition of “The Bible,” is that the first coach whacked will be Tampa Bay’s John Tortorella. The magazine came to that conclusion by polling their 30 correspondents, six “colleagues” from the Globe and Mail and some senior staff members….

Add it all up and I’d argue that Tortorella has a better shot at keeping his job longer than Atlanta’s Bob Hartley, Washington’s Glen Hanlon, Montreal’s Guy Carbonneau, Edmonton’s Craig MacTavish, Dallas’ Dave Tippett or even Phoenix’s Wayne Gretzky.
